Living by Our Christian Values

Our Church Year

Advent

Posada is a Mexican Christian tradition which re-enacts Mary and Joseph's search for a place to stay by travelling from house to house and is celebrated with food, song and reflection of Christian Values. 'Posada' is Spanish for 'inn' or 'shelter'.

At Advent, as we start to think about and get ready for Christmas, our children are invited to welcome Mary and Joseph (knitted by Sister Elizabeth) into their own homes for an evening and to reflect on the message of hope and love at Christmas.

 Christmas

At Christmas, we celebrate with traditional Christmas dinner, a whole school party lunch, our Christingle Service and Christmas performances by each Key Stage.

 

Epiphany (Three Kings Day): 6th January

Epiphany is celebrated by Christians around the world to mark the Three Kings visiting Jesus.

Our school has a traditional Epiphany Blessing chalked over the doorway each year.
