As the Junior School children are thoroughly enjoying Christmas activities at school we also welcomed a group of mothers from our Jewish community who came to speak in our assemblies last week.

They told us all about Hanukkah, the history and traditions. The Junior School children listened respectfully and all wanted to join in with the ceremonial lighting of the hanukkiah.

They also loved the gifts of dredyls and chocolate coins that were given to all the children. We hope that all the members of our Jewish community had a lovely Hanukkah.
