Ukraine Day March 2022
'Be the best we can be for ourselves and others'
This week we held an assembly all about the Good Samaritan and how we can all be like him. The worship team helped to lead the assembly and asked the children what they could do to be just like the Good Samaritan.
The ideas the children came up with were fabulous.
"We could raise money for charity" "We could send help to the people of Ukraine" "We could help our friends when they feel sad" " We could show courage"
The worship team made a note of these fantastic ideas and displayed them on the worship display.
Every day the children of St Christopher's make me feel proud.
Remembrance Day 2021
At St Christopher's CE School we provide a happy, nurturing and supportive environment founded on the principles of the Christian faith; helping to develop children’s spiritual growth and moral understanding. All members of our school community are valued and respected, so that everyone can have a positive attitude. Our vision 'Be the best we can be for ourselves and others' permeates through everything we do.
Our school’s Christian character contributes significantly to the academic achievement, personal development and well-being of all learners. Although we are a church school, we are inclusive to all members of the community we serve. Our aim is that pupils from all faiths and those without a faith feel safe and happy, secure in the knowledge that their beliefs are respected and valued.
The Christian character is evident in the strong sense of respect existing between staff and pupils, who are proud to flourish at our special school.
At St Christopher's CE School, our daily act of collective worship is an important part of the day when we gather as a school or class community to reflect, think and pray. It is a time when we think about our school vision and promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children.
Collective worship is led by class teachers, the worship team and Reverend MacInnes. We are fortunate to be able to invite visitors to also talk to the children as part of our annual programme.
Prayer and Reflection
At St Christopher's prayer forms part of our daily act of collective worship. We recognise that prayers can only have a religious significance for some, but they have potential to give spiritual insights for all.
Adults, the worship team and children lead prayer at our school. We recognise that prayer does not have to be spoken and we often use silence and stillness to reflect upon our thoughts and feelings. We like to light the candles when we do this.
