Welcome to The School Family, Reception 2016!

2016 10 11 02.26.29 pmTechnical issues have prevented us from posting images sooner from our Reception Welcome Service  - but here they are now in their full glory!

Gratefully hosted by our home-from-home, St Mary's church, Reverand Axford led a service to formally welcome our youngest pupils and their families into the Blue Coat community. The service comprised of songs, hymns, readings from our Year 6 buddies and school leaders, as well as prayers and blessings.

The highlight of the service is captured in many of the images below. Each Reception pupil was presented with a pebble painted by their Year 6 buddy. In doing so, the child was announced to the school family and asked to place a pebble around our school candle, representing the Holy Spirit that we have guiding each of us towards good.

The service was very well supported by parents and we look forward to sharing more memorable moments with them over the coming years. Thank you to all who made the service such a special occasion.
