Today Year 7 participated in an assembly organised by the United Church, Ferndown. The theme of the assembly was “Messy Christmas.” The children were told the story of Christmas and then told about some what life was like in that time. The children were surprised to learn that Mary was probably about 14 years old and that being unmarried and pregnant in that time, could have led to her being stoned. Fortunately for Mary,, Joseph stood by her.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the quiz type questions and their favourite part was the opportunity to dress up in role. Photographs can be seen on the website.
The Year 7 team hope you have a wonderful Christmas time with your family and look forward to seeing everyone in the New Year.
