On Thursday, 6th May 2021, to start the day, the Prep School gathered in the secret garden adjacent to the main house. Some of the children scattered rose petals as they led the way to the statue in the garden. Together, everyone recited the Angelus prayer, the ‘Ave Maria’ and then crowned the statue of Mary to honour her as the Mother of Christ. Father Lamb then granted an official blessing to the statue and spoke to the children about her. The Head Boy and Girl and the Deputy Head Boy and Girl all did an excellent job of leading the prayers.
Later in the day, Pre-Prep pupils visited the statue of Mary and said some prayers accompanied by actions.
This was a very special occasion for the whole School community, celebrating the faith which is at the heart of our School’s ethos.
