Prep had an exciting day this Wednesday, as we took a short walk over to Christ Church to take part in a mock baptism of our dolly, Daisy!
To familiarise themselves with the setting, Father Peter first gave the girls a set of questions that they had to complete by hunting around the church to find the answer - the girls were very excited and the church soon became a flurry of engaged children dashing this way and that to spot the clues! Father Peter then moved onto re-enacting a baptism around the real font, wearing the traditional attire and using the special holy oils. A few girls from each class took on the role of the dolly's parents and godparents, and the rest of us became family and friends in attendance of the ceremony.
It was a very informative trip - one that the girls will not soon forget!Back to newsroom
