Ash Wednesday 2019

This year for Ash Wednesday the Juniors went to morning Mass at church and Father Derek came into school to give ashes to the Early Years and Infants.  It was a wonderful opportunity for the children to deepen their understanding of Ash Wednesday and for them to recgongnise it as the first day of Lent.  The children in The Early Years and KS1 had the chance to ask Father Derek some questions about Ash Wednesday before receiving their ashes.  During Lent everyone is encouraged to consider ways in which we can grow in love and kindness.
