Held at our Church, Experience Easter was a great way to develop school-church links and was an exciting way to share the story of the Christian faith and to engage children in the events and celebrations of Easter. Children travelled around six stations (representing six parts of the Easter story) in the church building and had opportunities to respond through multi-sensory activities.
Our Harvest collections this year were passed on to the Dartford food bank (who provide help to individuals and families living in Dartford) and Time for the Homeless (an organisation seeking to help the homeless and vulnerable of Kent through soup kitchens and the distribution of clothing, necessities and advice).
“And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.”
Hebrews 13:16 (New Living Translation)
Thank Your Vicar Week
During Thank Your Vicar Week, we thought about all the different ways Rev. Emma cares for the people in our community, including our school. We made cards and wrote prayers to give to her to let her know how much she is appreciated!
A team from CRIBS (Christian Resources in Bexley Schools) came in to school for a morning to teach the children about ‘Living Values’, with a particular focus on ‘Thankfulness’ – one of our Christian values. Children were encouraged to reflect and think about the things that they were thankful for, sometimes things that are just expected are often taken for granted.
Our school community came together to observe the two minute silence on Remembrance Day.
In November 2018, to commemorate 100 years since the end of World War One, we participated in a range of activities, learning about the sacrifices made and the significance of the poppy.
