It was with great joy that we were able to return to one of our parish churches this week to celebrate an Advent Service on Tuesday 30th November. The last time we were able to do this at Sacred Heart and St Peter the Apostle was in 2019, so after a 2-year gap there was much excitement. All of the pupils in Key Stage 2 (aged 7 to 11) walked from school to church for a peaceful reflection on the true meaning of the season of Advent, marking out the time of preparation and readiness as distinct from the subsequent season of Christmas.
Great thanks go to our Pupil Chaplains for leading the service, to Oaklands’ Lay Chaplain Miss Heath, and to St Peter’s colleagues Mrs Moore and Mrs Buckingham who lead our Pupil Chaplains. In addition, thank you to the family volunteers who accompanied us on the walk to and from the church to keep the pupils safe and moving along. And if you want to know what a line of 240 children walking through Waterlooville looks like, look at this picture!
