On Thursday 15th June, the pupils in year 6 travelled through to Carlisle Cathedral for the annual school leavers' service. There were several other church schools represented in the cathedral.
The children had been learning the songs before the service and sang enthusiastically in the cathedral. There were prayers and little challenges as well as a procession where every school chose two representatives to walk down the aisle with their school banner.
Challenge 1: Going the distance for someone you love
Challenge 2: Making something your own
Challenge 3: Going the distance
Challenge 4: Change the world, Pray!
At the end of the service, each school was given a candle which was lit by the clergy.
Thank you to everyone who organised the experience - it was all so relevant to year 6 as school leavers and gave the children a lot to think about as they move on to their new schools.
