We held our annual Christingle Service in our school hall on Thursday. The Year 2 children read their parts and explained why we participate in this lovely service that originates from Moravia.
Christingle means ‘Christ light’ and is used to celebrate Jesus Christ as the light of the world. The orange symbolises the world, the red ribbon is Jesus’ blood and the four cocktail sticks symbolises the seasons. The sweets are symbols of Goods gifts of love. We sang and the children thought about children in the world who are less fortunate and how basic needs are not met like food and shelter.
