Class 2 are excitedly preparing for this year’s Musical Christmas Market that will be held in the Hall on 8th December. As the year draws to a close, this is a whole school community event that brings us all together in a festive way and serves as a fundraiser for the school.
This year’s Giving Tree charity will be for the Lady Cilento Children’s Hosipital. Please could every family could bring a gift for a child (homemade or bought) on the day of the market to be placed under the tree. This would be greatly appreciated.
A Reflection – CELEBRATING OUR INNER LIGHT….
In the Southern hemisphere, Christmas falls near the Summer Solstice, with the light at its strongest, and we celebrate the ‘triumph of light’ at its greatest point in the year.
As our year draws to an end, we increasingly spend our time out in the elements, enjoying ‘the sun in the heavens’. With the long hot days, intense light and balmy nights we are drawn into the elements rather than into ‘the light in our hearts’. It can be challenging to develop a sense of inwardness, patience and contemplation when we and the Spirit of the Earth is on its outward breath. To balance this, we can consciously choose to ‘receive the light’ and celebrate what is both universally human and spiritual.
With very best regards – Class 2 Parents/Guardians
