We had assembly on Monday the 21st of December. It was a Christmas assembly. We started off by singing the hymn Away in a Manger.
Mr Reidy spoke about the real meaning of Christmas and that Jesus is the greatest gift of all at Christmas time. Children from Ms Jenkinson’s read The Story of Christmas from the Gospel of St Luke.
We then had Prayers of the Faithful.
