A place of educational excellence with Christ at the centre

Lent 2022

The school has planned lots of exciting activities to lead us through Lent. Please see the attachment below.


I led an assembly for the whole school to introduce Lent this year. I read an extract from Matthews Gospel to remind the children of the temptation of Jesus in the desert. The children spoke excitedly about the whole school bake sale on Shrove Tuesday. We can all use up those sweet things in our cupboards! Each child then drew around their hands and wrote what they are thinking of giving up or taking on. I spoke to the children about how we can all take our two hands to pray more during Lent.  


A Walk against Hunger: A fundraising walk to stop hunger! 

Helen and Douglas House were thrilled with the money the school donated after the Lenten bake sale:
