Shrove Tuesday


Leading Lights introduced the theme of Shrove Tuesday as the day to celebrate the beginning of Lent - a period of time when we prepare ourselves and hearts for Easter.



Leading Lights shared our school's plan of "give away, not give up" for Lent, to support our local foodbank and also to reduce the pressure on children and staff to "give up chocolate" or go on a diet for Lent - as this is not the reason for Lent (nor does it promote a healthy approach to eating and self-image!)



Leading Lights then lead the school with prayers for our local community and that we may be a blessing to them throughout Lent and beyond.
