Pentecost Experience

We know that Christmas and Easter are significant celebrations in the Christian Calendar. But.... Pentecost???

The children in Hastings Class were invited to St James' Church in Weatherly this afternoon to commemorate the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the followers of Jesus shortly after He was crucified. Some Christians believe that this event represents the birth of the Church.

Mrs Sharp, and her team at St James', made us feel very welcome as we engaged in a number of activities that helped us to reflect on the Christian festival of Pentecost.

During our visit, we observed a minute's silence to remember the victims of the Manchester Arena atrocity.

As always, opportunities for our children to participate in events and experiences outside our immediate locality, are only made possible by the goodwill and availability of parents and volunteers who assist in transporting children to venues further afield and who are willing to engage in the work and learning we do in school. We never take this for granted and behalf of the children, staff and governors of Lady Elizabeth Hastings, I'd like to say a huge thank you to all the parents and staff who helped with today's experience. Thank you!
