The Last Supper

Year 4 helped to continue our journey through Holy Week by acting out the Last Supper this morning. The children showed how Jesus’ washed the feet of his disciples showing how he serves others – a message for us today – along with sharing the bread and wine that through the Eucharist becomes the body and blood of Christ for us today.

Palm Sunday

Year 3 started our journey through Holy Week by sharing their Palm
Sunday Assembly this afternoon. The children reminded us of how Jesus arrived in Jerusalem on a humble donkey as the crowds of people cheered and waved palm leaves excitedly!
