This year our Advent Window looked amazing! It was a true celebration of our school traditions and values and we are all so proud of it.
The Brigstock School contribution to the Living Advent celebrates our past, our present and our hopes for the future.
The window has been made as part of our ‘Brigstock 400’ celebrations, and it shows all the traditions that are so important to our school. We believe that the traditions make our school so special:
“1620-2020, some things change but some stay the same…
Seasons keep turning, life keeps us learning,
Traditions will always remain”
One side of the window shows our village through time, and the seasonal celebrations that we all hold so dear.
On the other side of the window, there is an image of the first Christmas- which brought hope to us all. This year we have recorded our own hopes for the future. We have used the rainbow as a symbol of hope, as this has been such a powerful symbol during 2020.
Every child in school has made a significant contribution to the window and we hope that it will bring hope and joy to everyone who sees it during the Advent Season.
We opened the window on four separate occasions in each of our ‘bubbles’, and we felt so supported by our whole school community. We know that everyone within the village will continue to enjoy it in the run up to Christmas. Our pupil leadership team wrote a lovely assembly to share with children and parents and it felt like a very special day…despite the rain!
