Holocaust Memorial Day event, Church Street, Warwick

In a local tradition that stretches over the last twenty years Holocaust Memorial Day on 27th January was marked at the Warwick War Memorial in Church Street with a special open air service of prayers and poetry readings. Children and teachers from five local schools joined together with members of the wider public and civic dignitaries from the Town, District and County Councils led by the Mayor of Warwick. In doing this Warwick joins towns, cities and schools all over the world in spending some moments remembering the victims and horror of genocides and holocausts over the last century. The prayers were led by Father Patrick Mileham. The pieces that were read were very moving reminding us all of the terrible things that can happen when understanding and tolerance are replaced by persecution and victimisation.

Pupils from All Saints and Coten End primary schools joined students from Aylesford, Myton, Warwick and Kings High schools to read and listen to poems and readings about the holocaust in WW2 and subsequent genocides. Back in the schools over the last week there have been special assemblies and projects.

The Mayor of Warwick, Cllr Richard Edgington, laid a wreath of white flowers. Then the moving ceremony concluded with the two minutes’ silence, the Memorial Prayer for the Victims of the Shoah, and the Blessing.

Shakespeare in School Day
We were lucky to be visited by 'West End in Schools' this week. They sent Jess to work with year 4, year 5 and year 6 on the play Romeo and Juliet. We all had our parts to play and had great fun acting them out. At the end of the day we performed the whole play to Year 3. 
Lights of Love Service
The choir represented All Saints' and Emscote brilliantly at the Lights of Love Service this weekend in Warwick Town. Each and every one of them were singing their little hearts out. I am extremely proud of them. Lucia Hart
Advent Service of the Mothers' Union in the Coventry Diocese
This was the annual Advent Service of the Mothers' Union in the Coventry Diocese.  One of their main gatherings in the year. 
This year we were delighted to be hosting it at All Saints Church Emscote.  150+ members of the Mothers' Union came.  20 children from Emscote Voices.
The President of the Mothers' Union in the Diocese Jane Hill sent her thanks:
The  children's choir was a very special addition - so appropriate in many ways and they really added a sense of joy to the service. I don't think we've ever had a children's choir participate in any of our previous MU diocesan services, so it was very special.
From its website:
Mothers’ Union is a global Christian movement working with people of all faiths and none to develop communities, strengthen families and advocate for change.
There are 4 million members in 84 countries across the globe.

St Mary's Art Competition
 During June, All Saints' Art Club exhibited their work at St Mary's Church, Warwick. The theme was 'Sunflower Varieties'.
Our inspiration came from Van Gogh's bright and impressive studies of sunflowers, Georgia O'Keefe's simple yet large sunflower paintings and William Morris' beautiful and useful wallpaper designs.
One of our members received a prize, from the St Mary's Hall Trust, for her amazing sunflower collage, created using different textures and patterned paper.

Day of the African Child

On Thursday 13th June All Saints' was delighted to be the host school for the annual Day of the African Child. It was a magnificent success despite the rain!

This special event enabled all our children to take part in six African themed workshops throughout the day. 

After lunch all 550 pupils and staff marched round our field, with their school banners, in a parade to celebrate our school links with Bo in Sierra Leone. 

Our Bo teacher guests were John Sandi, Lucy Amara, Kula Fangawa and Francis Jusu.

Mrs Garrett, our International Coordinator, who also works with 'One World Link' was very grateful for the amazing teamwork from the All Saints' staff who all made the exciting day go smoothly.

Bishop John of Warwick was amongst many special guests towards the end of the day. They were invited to place a plant in our Ecobrick Planter, a culmination of work amongst many schools doing the Zero Waste project.
