Christmas Assembly

This afternoon the whole school met together in the round for a very special assembly.

We began with three candles lit on our Advent wreath. We then listened to this weekend’s Gospel before lighting the fourth candle.

We sang Silent Night together and  then listened about the Birth of Jesus in Luke’s Gospel.

As we sang Away in a Manger a little friend from our reception class with a special birthday on 25th December placed Jesus in the manger!

We then lit the final candle on our advent wreath, the white one, as we will not be in school on Christmas day!

We thought about Mary’s important ‘Yes’ and her part in God’s wonderful plan for the world. We joined together with a Hail Mary thinking of those who will be less fortunate than us at Christmas.

The children have been asked to help out at home in the lead up to Christmas day! Thank you to everyone for your support with concerts and plays and charity efforts over the past few weeks. Thank you also from all of the adults for lovely gifts ad kind words – you are very generous. We will keep you in our prayers at this time!

See you on 6tth January 2015!

Well done Year 6 – you are all Christmas stars!!!

We were so pleased to receive this email today ….

Dear Mr White & Miss Puccio

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to both of you after the wonderful carol singing which Year 6 provided for us here at Danesbury Hospital.

You have no idea how proud I felt of all the children and the school, it was a lovely experience. As anticipated, they were all so well behaved and sang beautifully. They represented the school so well, and were a credit to the teachers, staff, parents and themselves. I had such glowing feedback from the staff here, and the patients really enjoyed joining in with the singing.

Please can you pass on my thanks to all the children and the 2 classroom assistants for making it such a special occasion. If you are willing, we would love to have you back again next year; these sentiments were echoed by all the Danesbury staff.

My heartfelt thanks once again. I feel so lucky to be involved with St Margaret Clitherow School and the lovely children you have there.

I hope you all have a Happy and Joyful Christmas, and a peaceful and prosperous New Year.

Many thanks

Kind regards
