Posada

As part of our Advent preparation this year, we have decided to include Posada celebrations. ‘Posada’ is a Spanish word which means ‘inn’. Posada celebrations originated in South America where two children were chosen to represent Mary and Joseph. They went from house to house telling people about the imminent arrival of Jesus. A modern equivalent is based on this concept but encourages people to give a home to the wooden nativity figures of Mary and Joseph for a night. Each night throughout Advent the figures travel from family to family and this symbolises making room for Jesus in our lives, homes and communities.

Here are a few examples from different children across the school:

Thank you to everyone who donated shoe boxes, items to go in the boxes and their time to help wrap the boxes. The children loved learning about why the items were being collected and enjoyed selecting different items to pack in the boxes. We are pleased to tell you that we have donated 48 shoe boxes to Operation Christmas Child. If you would like to read more about the charity, please follow the link below.
