Pupils Decorate Chapel Christmas Tree
The Christmas tree in the College Chapel was lovingly decorated with twinkling lights and carefully handcut stars.
In what has become an important tradition here at Princethorpe, the College community were invited to write the names of those who have touched their lives with love on a star. Each individual handwritten star was then carefully positioned on the tree.
The message of Christmas is one of love and the decorated Christmas tree in the Chapel is our College’s symbolic representation of that message. The many stars on the tree a testament to the presence of love in the world.
Standing alongside this year’s Chapel Christmas tree is our ‘Tree of Resilience’ which has also been decorated beautifully with brightly coloured paper chains. In their Advent Reflection, pupils in Year 7 and Year 8 were encouraged to share how they are living up to this year’s Chaplaincy theme of ‘Resilience’ by writing an example of how they have shown resilience this term on a strip of paper. Their thoughts were then joined together in a paper chain.
Our thanks go to Year 7 pupils, Gwenan Roberts, Dylan Llewellyn, Sophie Crawford and Max Wither, who, alongside their peers, have helped with decorating our trees.
