St. Edmund Arrowsmith, Whiston, Year 8

We are well into Advent, so we have been thinking about a more festive theme with the year 8 pupils of St. Edmund Arrowsmith in Whiston.

Throughout the week we were learning more about Advent and different features we may think we know: from the symbolism of the nativity scenes we know so well from our Christmas cards, to making Christmas cards for young people in the Holy Land.

All this was wrapped up with a lovely time of personal prayer and reflection.

It was a lovely group, and I’m sure everybody learned something new about the festive season.
