First assembly of the week

This morning in Bexleyheath I stepped back into my old school to talk to the girls about the events that will take place this weekend.

To say I was nervous is an understatement, but the 200 year 10 girls were warm, responsive and welcoming, making the morning a really exciting opportunity for them to prepare themselves for the weekend.

Accompanied by the youtube video 'Do you know Pope Benedict XVI?', I spent a few minutes trying to illustrate the importance of the visit, the joy that surrounds it and how important it is for the us to share this pilgrimage with other members of our Christian community.

Hopefully the girls took something away from it as the school provides many ways for them to get invovled- having set up a Papal Visit Committee team, the head Mrs Slonecki taking five girls to Twickenham on Friday, 8 girls going with staff to Hyde Park whilst being followed by the BBC and all of the girls will be getting bookmarks specially made to remind them of this weekend.

Onwards and upwards for the rest of the week. Only 3 days to go.
