On Monday we attended our first school assembly. It was very special as Jimmy from ‘Link to Hope’ talked to us about the shoe box appeal. He told us that these gifts bring big smiles and happiness to people in Romania. We each shared our ideas as to what we could include in our Christmas Shoe Box.
On Wednesday we joined with all of the school for hymn practice. We looked at different hymns that we may sing throughout the year. Some of the songs will be sang during assemblies, masses and liturgies. We were very happy when we had the chance to rehearse our song for our welcome liturgy.
On Thursday we joined with our special friends for our welcome liturgy. It was lovely to reflect on the people we have met so far in school and the people we might meet along the way.
During collective worship time on Friday some of us planned a liturgy for the year 5 class to share with us. We spent time praising and thanking God for our new friends.
