1/2 Learn More About Baptism

This term, we are learning more about the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation and First Eucharist. Today the 1/2 level walked across to Holy Cross Church to meet Fr Brian Traynor who taught an engaging and informative lesson about the sacrament of Baptism and what the symbols of the sacrament mean. Fr Brian had children play the part of parents and child within a Baptism ceremony and explained the relevance of the stole, candle, gown, water and oils. It was a lovely excursion that enabled children to return to school and reteach their classmates new learnings and understandings.

  1. You guys are so lucky to go to a church and learn loads of things.
    Good to see what my sister learnt.

  2. I had a great time on the Holy Cross Church excursion. Father Brian showed us around the Church and the important things used for Baptism. When we got back to class, we did a presentation on the Font. The Font is where the priest pours the holy water over the baby.
