We held our annual Carol Service in School on Friday 21st December. The theme of the service was peace as we looked back on the ways in which we had commemorated the centenary of the end of World War One in November. Y6 read 'The Christmas Truce - The Place Where Peace Was Found' by Hilary Robinson and Martin Impey, which retold the happenings on Christmas Day 1914 when the soldiers on opposing sides laid down their weapons for a few short hours. As we listened to the traditional Christmas Bible readings, read by representatives of each year group in school, we reminded ourselves that Jesus came as the Prince of Peace. Looking forward, we asked God to help us all to be peacemakers in our own lives and everyone took away a dove bookmark to remind us that we should strive for peace in every season of the year, not just at Christmas.
We held our annual Harvest Service in Church on Tuesday 25th September. Y6 led the service and shared the story of 'Stone Soup' with us all - a story demonstrating that everyone is better off if we all share.
Thank you to everyone who brought in Harvest gifts; these were distributed to the Chorley homeless.
