St Paul’s Day
On 25th January, St Paul’s Primary school celebrated St Paul’s Day with a fantastic service at St Paul’s Church. Ash Class wrote some prayers, Willow Class read the Bible readings and reflections, and Chestnut Class performed a drama about the life of St Paul.
We took some pictures on the day, which can be seen below.
EYFS and KS1 nativity plays
Here are some moments captured from our Nativity Play in December performed by Years 1 and 2 / Nursery and Reception.
Remembrance Service pictures
Redwood, Elm and Birch classes led the worship at our Remembrance Service. The focus this year was the centenary of World War 1, and along with hymns such as The Peace of God, we sang We’ll Meet Again (made popular by Vera Lynn after the Second World War) and the old World War 1 favourite, “It’s a Long Way to Tipperary” . We kept a period of silence at 11 a.m.to remember all the soldiers killed in the First World War and since.
Pasley Park Visit
Several classes from St. Paul’s went to Pasley Park to commemorate the life of a local soldier, Frank Stubbs. He died at Gallipoli, and was awarded a Victoria Cross for bravery – one of only six given at that battle.
Mother Katy led the service. The children from St. Paul’s gave a rousing rendition of “It’s a Long Way to Tiperrary”! The Mayor of Southwark attended the ceremony, and had his photograph taken with some of our children. Bermondsey MP Simon Hughes was there too. The biggest thrill for the children was meeting Lance Sergeant Beharry. Lance Sergeant Beharry was awarded a Victoria Cross for his outstanding bravery in Iraq. He is one of only two living Victoria Cross recipients in the UK, which made him a big celebrity. He signed autographs for the children and they absolutely loved him.
At our Easter Service, Oak, Larch and Maple Class led the worship. Oak Class read the Bible passage and wrote reflections on the meaning of this for them. Larch Class wrote some thought provoking prayers and Maple Class presented an enactment of the Crucifixion of Christ.
