"To be the best that we can be"

At the beginning of December class 4 put on a fantastic class assembly all about Advent. We learnt that Advent isn’t all about the chocolates we eat in our calendars but also about celebrating Christmas as a Christian. Class 4 taught us all about the Christingle, a celebration that happens in churches around Christmas time. Each piece of the Christingle holds special symbolism to help children understand the importance of Jesus and the Gospel, and its relevance at Christmas time.

  • The orange represents the world
  • The red ribbon symbolises the love and blood of Christ
  • The sweets and dried fruit represent all of God’s creations
  • The lit candle represents Jesus’s light in the world, bringing hope to people living in darkness

Why not have a go at making your own Christingle at home?

A big thank you to class 4 from all the school, well done!
