School webteam: November 2018
As a part of our Interfaith and Anti-bullying Week, Ann Angel visited our school to promote understanding and respect. The children in Sapphire Class, Pearl Class and Amber Class would like to thank Ann for an exciting introduction to Judaism. We discovered that Shabbat is a special time for Jewish families. It is a time to rest and reflect. We learned about the preparations made for Shabbat and the customs observed each week. Some Jewish people observe the Sabbath at home and in the synagogue. We learned about the importance of prayer and we sang a Hebrew song. Most importantly, we learned to value and respect each other's beliefs and customs.
