Children's school prayer
The children have devised our own school prayer to be recited in collective worship.
It is as follows:-
Thank you for our families and friends,
Thank you for nature, the food we eat and the homes we live in,
Thank you for our school.
Help us to try hard in everything we do,
Help us to look after each other,
Help us to love learning.
May our school be a happy place.
Please may we become more like you day by day.
Some of the pupils from the School Council said the following (about the school prayer).
‘Our School Prayer makes me think of the links between the school and St Matthew’s Church.’
‘Our school is a safe place and I feel closer to God when we have our prayer.’
‘Isabella, one of the pupils who attends Bible Club every week said,
’You learn more about the Bible and we get closer to God. It’s a fun club, not all serious. We learn stories through craft and games.’
