In this Sunday’s Gospel, we begin to celebrate the season of Advent. Advent is the season of hope, culminating in the celebration of the birth of Jesus, which brings us the good news that we are loved unconditionally. Embrace the joy of Advent and your family relationships as we prepare ourselves for the birth of Jesus Christ.
It is a busy time for us all as we start to prepare for the Christmas festivities. Please take the time to read the newsletter and make note of all the dates included within it.
Prayer is often overlooked during advent so each class is inviting parents to a stay and pray session in the last two weeks of term. These are either at drop off or pick up time and are an opportunity to pray and for the children and staff to lead their class in a moment of quiet prayer and contemplation. The dates for each class are as follows:
11/12/18 2.40pm Y1, 12/12/18 8.50am Y3, 14/12/18 8.50am Y5, 17/12/18 8.50am Y6
18/12/18 8.50am Y4 & FS1, 19/12/18 8.50am Y2, 20/12/18 8.50am FS2.
Please try and make it of you can.
