This morning our children learned about the Christian festival of Christingle. We outlined to them the different parts of the Christingle. I hope that the children will remember what the orange, red ribbon, cocktail sticks and sweets represent... Can they tell you? It is hoped that by having assemblies like this that we remember our core values... that we are kind and caring to one another always and be 'shining lights' to our friends and family just like Jesus is a shining light to all Christians.
I mentioned today that 'The Children's Society' collect donations around the whole of the country during Christingle services and all of the money collected goes towards projects that help vulnerable children. It is hoped that this support will give a little 'light' into their lives.
Thank you to Tescos who provided us with the materials to make our Christingles. We really appreciated your support for this activity.
