One of the privileges of belonging to a Church of England school is the annual leavers’ service held at Wells Cathedral. At St John’s this is regarded as a ‘rite of passage’ and viewed with great anticipation. It is an opportunity to come together with other church schools within the Diocese of Bath and Wells to gain an understanding of being part of this wider community and to celebrate and give thanks for our time at primary school whilst also looking forward to the next phase – moving on to secondary school.
The morning is spent working with others on a variety of tasks and workshops ranging from dance, mime and drama right through to considering what life might be like living in a village in Zambia. The day culminates in a service of thanksgiving where hymns are sung and prayers are said. It is a very proud and moving moment when children from every school process through the cathedral carrying their banner representing their peers and the community to which they belong. Before the service closes, each school is presented with a candle. At St John’s, we use our candle in our whole school acts of worship and remember the Year 6 children who have moved on to their new schools and new challenges.
