Advent Assembly

We were delighted to welcome Reverend William Allberry to School this week to lead our Advent Assembly. The boys used their Latin knowledge to explain that ‘advent’ means ‘the arrival of’ and went on to demonstrate their knowledge of the Advent period, beginning four Sundays before Christmas. They even used their maths skills to calculate the earliest day that Advent could begin would be 27th November. The important message of advent being a time to prepare and of special journeys was echoed in the Address at the Carol Service on Monday evening where our community came together to celebrate this special time of year.
