As the longest night of the year draws near and the whole school prepares to come together to mark the return of the light on Friday's winter solstice, the Primary School is a hive of activity, putting the finishing touches on lanterns, dipping candles, practising songs and the intricacies of the lantern walk - one of the Festival's highlights.
These activities, which are unique to this time of year, help build the atmosphere of reverence and wonder for the children. Friday's Winter Spiral is one of these special moments for students in Class 1, 2 and 3, helping bring an inner quiet and peace, before the colour and song of the Winter Festival story, that takes place in the Hall for the Primary School and our graduating class. The night is nigh, the time is near. We wish everyone a beautiful Festival night, full of peace and cheer.
