Holy Island 2017

Last week the children in Year 6 spent three days on Holy Island. The weather was reasonably kind to us and so we were able to spend nearly all of our time in the beautiful outdoors. Holy Island is a wonderful place steeped in history and incredible beauty. The children hiked and talked and talked and hikes and played and prayed. There was time for fun but also for reflection  as they prepare fore their move to secondary school. It was wonderful to be so close to nature and some of the children had birds eating out of their hands. We saw seals and even dolphins.

A wonderful memory for them all to take away with them as they start the next chapter in their lives.  Good luck and God bless you all.
