Believing, Achieving, Succeeding

Southwark leavers service.

When we arrived at Southwark Cathedral, we had an early lunch outside eating at about 11:00. Then, it was time to go into the Cathedral with all the other Church of England Schools ready to sing and celebrate our time in Primary School. The theme of this year's service was 'A Time of Belief'. The service began with one of the members of the Cathedral Chapter introducing themselves and the schools attending the service. Then, we all stood to sing Guide Me, O Thou Great Redeemer. The Bishop introduced himself beginning with a small prayer. We had time to reflect and pray and remind ourselves of all the times we had to believe in ourselves.  After the service, we walked along the river and very kindly Miss Dryden and Tamara treated all of year 6 to an ice cream; we must have been well behaved!
