Junior School pupils enjoy special RE celebration morning at Salesian School
12 children from Years 3 – 6 at St George's Junior School attended the RE celebration morning hosted by Salesian School in Chertsey on Friday 16 March. This is now an annual event in which primary schools from the Deanery join together to focus on a specific theme and share their faith.
This year, the chosen theme was ‘Vocations’ – what is God calling you to do? The children enjoyed lots of discussions and had excellent ideas on what God was asking each of them to do. They all split into their year groups to create something on the theme of vocations, led by staff from the different schools and a wonderful team of Year 9 students from Salesian School.The Year 3 children made prayer stones and bookmarks, the Year 4 children created some excellent Scratch Art and the Year 5 children designed beautiful canvasses. Meanwhile the Year 6 children flexed their musical muscles and created their own song based on the theme.
The morning ended with a beautiful liturgical service led by Fr Marco (Chaplain at Salesian School) before staff and children shared a lunch together.
One child commented: “It was a fantastic morning. I didn’t know what vocation meant before I went to Salesian School and now I totally understand that I need to listen to what God wants me to do. I loved meeting new people, especially the Year 9s from Salesian School who were great fun and so helpful.”
St George's would like to thank Salesian School for their warmth and generosity in hosting this very special event.
