School and Community Events
Christingle, another wonderful event in the Hever school calendar. We gathered outside the church, sang together and shared moments of reflection as a school. The children loved making the Christingles and were very keen to share their understanding of them when Reverend Simon asked for their meaning. These events are very precious and ones that the children remember and look forward to.
We gathered as a school for a peaceful service to remember those who have lost their lives fighting for our freedoms. We were welcomed with calming music and lead through the service by the Year 6 Leading Lights and Reverend Simon Braid. Each class created and laid down a wreath which every child had contributed to. We had a very special guest, Kevin Adams, who played 'The Last Post' and 'The Reveille'. His remarkable contribution to our service was very moving. As we left, we walked through the church, taking a moment to observe the soldier silhouettes and reflect once more on this incredibly important occasion. Today was a very special day for the children and staff at Hever School.
The whole of Hever school were united once more at St. Peter's Church. We gathered together inside the church for the first time in a year and a half. As we first walked in, the smells and atmosphere reminded us of many wonderful services in the past. We felt so happy and excited to be back. Reverend Simon led the service, which was brilliant and really highlighted the need to make sure we share food with each other. There is enough in the world to go around, but some people need extra help getting it. We also loved singing and dancing, listening to poems and reflecting in prayer. It was such a joy to be back and we look forward to many more services there this year.
We gathered as school, outside St Peter's Church, and enjoyed an end of term Easter Service together.
Each class in the school made an Easter Garden which were given to the church for decorations over the Easter weekend. We even had some visiting donkeys!
