Christmas Service1

Even though we couldn’t hold this at church due to their heating problems, it was a well- attended event. The real meaning of Christmas was explored through carols and readings from each class.

 

 

 

 

 

Remembrance Day reflections 2

At the beginning of November, St Laurence took time out to really think about why we celebrate Remembrance Day. Throughout the school, the children took part in a range of lessons to help them understand, as well as having a 2 minutes silence across the school. Each child in the school was given a Poppy to add to our own ‘Field of Remembrance’ along the gates outside. The Poppies looked lovely fluttering along the front of the school and the awful weather on the day didn’t ruin the sentiments felt by the children.

         

 

 

Installation of Bishop of Dover 3

We are very proud that our choir were invited to this historic occasion at Canterbury Cathedral. They sang beautifully and represented our school with pride. Reverend Dr. Rose Hudson-Wilkin was installed as the new Bishop of Dover. This was a historical occasion because Dr. Rose Hudson-Wilkin is the church’s first female black bishop.

 

 

 

Harvest Festival Thursday 10th October

The service was led by our Year 4 children who reminded us all of the importance of giving through song, poetry, readings and prayers. They did a fabulous job and really made us think and reflect about those people in the world who need our support especially in these difficult financial times.
