Advent: Preparing for the Coming of Jesus

 

Sunday, 29 November marks the first week of Advent – The week of Hope.

 

Advent marks the beginning of a season where we wait and prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus at Christmas.

 

We ask God to guide us as people of hope this Advent.  We pray for all around the world who are hungry, lonely and in need.  May they come to know that they are not alone at this time and that they continue to be people of Hope in their communities.  Help us to share the hope of this season with everyone we meet and be the living Jesus in our world today.

Amen

 

Pyjama Day on Friday, 20 November

 

The Year 4 students have been learning about how we can experience hope, peace and joy during Advent and Christmas. In response to their learning, the children will be supporting the work of Aprila Rise, a local not for profit charitable organisation, through an initiative called Love In A Box.

 

Come to school in your Pyjamas and donate a gold coin.

 

All funds collected will contribute to the purchasing of books which will be a special Christmas gift for the children to open on Christmas morning.

 

We look forward to a fun day where our school can raise money to help others and spread love, joy and peace this Advent and Christmas.
