Martinmas – Lanterns & Sharing
As the autumn evenings are getting darker we celebrate Martinmas with a lantern walk. All children from kindergarten to class 8 are making their own lanterns for this occasion.
Celebrating the festival of St Martin who shared his cloak with a beggar, we are also remembering refugees around the world in need of warmth, hope and compassion. As part of the gesture of sharing, we would like to send a donation to those arriving in unfamiliar places with nothing, or those waiting in the cold for the help that they need. This year we would like to send unused socks, gloves and hats to help keep them warm.
