First day at School

"Firsts" are an important part of every child's life and today the reception children experienced their "first day at school".

After a morning of settling in, finding out where everything is, having lots of fun, experiencing a few tears (yes, mummy, we know you did and yes your child was fine!) and meeting up with old and new friends, the members of Carle and McKee classes joined the rest of the school in the church building.

Here they were supported by some of their parents and were welcomed into the family of both Christ Church school and Christ Church church. After a few words by Rev.John Hookway  and some of the year 6 children this special day was marked by each child being presented with a Bible story book.

Over the years this has proved to be a very popular book for adults and children to share and the children delight in the next milestone - the first time they can read it alone!

Well done to all the children and parents for surviving the first day of school and we hope this celebration service helped create memories of this special occasion in your child's life. We look forward to getting to know you and your child better.
