St James Feast Day 2020

Today we celebrated St James Feast day a little differently. We normally have a whole school Mass and invite our families to come and celebrate with us. This didn’t happen this time around but we did have some other things up our sleeve. Many thanks to Julie, our Religious Education Leader, for creating an online experience, like an Escape Room. Hopefully the students were able to enjoy this today.
Our school prayer was a focus this morning too, and the students got to unpack the various themes that are embedded in our prayer.
There is a culture of enjoying a special hot chocolate in Spain. In fact, if you look into the history of chocolate, the Spanish had a fair bit to do with making it popular across the rest of the world. To further celebrate St James Feast Day, you might like to try making a Spanish hot chocolate at home. An instructional video is posted, along with a recipe sheet. It’s a little fancier than your average hot chocolate, so beware.
