Waiting with Mary; Advent retreat Day of Prayer with Dan & Emily

What a wonderful day we have all had; preparing for Advent with Dan & Emily.


The day began with a staff prayer service, inviting us all to think about Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and how humble she was when she was asked to carry the Son of God; She said ‘Yes!’ 

Throughout the day the whole school came together to ‘Wait with Mary’ & prepare for the start of Advent. Children and staff, used the quiet time to pray & reflect on what Advent means to them; thinking about what they are doing to prepare their hearts & minds for the Birth of Jesus! 

Everybody really enjoyed taking the time out of the usually busy curriculum, to spend time in prayer. The children were so reverent & respectful throughout the day and especially when we ended the day, just like we started, with a whole school prayer service! 

We are extremely excited to light our first candle on the Advent Wreath next week, & look forward to the weeks ahead; KS1 Christmas Nativity & KS2 Carol Service!
