ADVENT ASSEMBLY (Year 4 classes)
The annual Advent Assembly organised by the Year 4 was another memorable experience for the girls. It was an opportunity for the parents to watch their children present a spectacle of performances representing the joy of the birth of Jesus and the special meaning of Advent. Here is a sample of a few items for all to enjoy –
Advent is time of WAITING…. waiting in silence for the time of the birth of our saviour Jesus Christ. We wait in silence, we wait in HOPE… We are Your people, we trust in Your love, O Son of Justice, O Prince of Peace. Our Hearts thirst for You.
We celebrate Christmas time with endless hours of shopping for gifts. We decorate with Christmas trees and amazing lights. We are overjoyed with the mention of Father Christmas! We attend parties and dance to Christmas Music. But where is Jesus in our Christmas? Do we really look for Him? Let us ask call Him and rejoice! O COME EMMANUEL!!! REJOICE!!
This year we are celebrating the goal of CHARACTER. We learn how important it is to love and care not only for ourselves, our family and our friends, but also for all of our society. The Christmas Story has travelled all over the world. It is all about a baby….. a baby who changed the world! This baby made the angels sing! This baby had come to change the world!!!
