Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Rochester Cathedral Celebration

On Thursday, Bullfinches and Doves travelled to Rochester to celebrate our time in Primary School…

Once we got to the Cathedral, Year 6 was broken into four different groups to participate in different activities in the morning. Some classes were brought in to create a prayer box that will allow them to draw what they want prayer for.

Other groups were creating a key chain that represented the different stages of their life in Primary school.

Finally, the groups were shown several different ways to pray to God. They wrote their sin upon a rock and placed it in water so that the water would wash away their sin. Another way was to write what they wanted fixed in the world and write it on a pasture and stick it to a cross. The final way was to draw an outline of their hand and write the people they hold dear to them on the fingers and palm of their hand.

After the activities, we were seated through a Eucharist Service where different groups acted out stories from the Bible, sung songs as a collective and took part in Holy Communion. We finished with a prayer and having our Banner walked down the aisle of the cathedral.

Overall, it was a really good experience and we all arrived back safely.

  • The school’s Christian values of love, honesty and respect are well expressed through its caring atmosphere. This impacts positively on the strong sense of belonging and supporting relationships evident across the school.
