St Cuthbert's CofE Junior School Prayer Group
New prayer unveiled
St Cuthbert's Church Children & Families Work Coordinator - Susan Ison-Stierer - has been running workshops with a group of Year 4 children at St Cuthbert's C of E Junior School to create their own unique school prayer.
The children shared it with pupils and parents for the first time this week, in their Friday 'School Community' Assembly, explaining how they tried to set out the aspirations, hopes and sense of belonging that they felt their school prayer should reflect.
With Susan's help they also produced a stunning prayer tree which will carry the children's prayers in response to changing events in their lives.
This is their prayer:
Thank you for our school
We thank you that each one of us is special and amazing
We pray that our school is a palace of peace
Full of happiness, epic adventure and big dreams
A place where we encourage and bring out the best in each other.
Help us to be kind, work hard, grateful and see the awesome wonders of the world all around us.
Let us be a shining light in our community
And proud to be part of our school.
