Oh When the Saints...
All Saint's Day
To celebrate the Feast of All Saint's the children were invited to come to school dressed as a saint. The whole school went to mass at the Holy Ghost Church. On arrival the children paraded around the church singing ’Oh as the saints go marching in...' This brought a smile to the faces of the parishioners.
Fr Philip pointed out the Saints in the church windows and showed our very own ‘St James’ a statue of St James!
The children looked amazing dressed up in their Saints Costumes! It was lovely that we had a range of different Saints, many of which the children had never heard of before so we could talk about who they were and what they had done.
In Class the children explored who saints were. This was done through research, art and discussions.
Well done everyone for the effort you put into your costumes and for making the celebration such a joyful one.
