Sunday - World Kindness Day - 7 Arrowsmith - Newsround
Let me start off by relating how yesterday was a very special day.  Megan (Head Girl) and Oonagh (Deputy Head Girl) represented us at the City of Liverpool Service of Remembrance and Dedication at St. George's Hall.   They were really marvellous - respectful and dignified in laying a wreath on our behalf at the Cenotaph.  
The service was moving as ever with poppies, wreaths, music, prayers and marching by uniformed organisations including serving and former armed forces personnel.  
One of the most poignant moments was when Joey (the War Horse puppet from the play of the same name by Michael Morpurgo) honoured the wreaths laid by dipping his head.

They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old.

Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.  We will remember them.

Before and after the service was a bit of a photo-fest as we bumped into various dignitaries - Archbishop Malcolm, Anglican Bishop Paul Bayes (follow him on Twitter!) and Mayor Joe Anderson - who is a very strong supporter of St. Julie's and who was instrumental in ensuring our new school building was constructed!

Today was World Kindness Day - a reminder to live out the Golden Rule to "treat others as you'd like to be treated!"

You can check out Kid President on the calendar section of this website for today.

I spent Sacred Time with 7 Arrowsmith - who take it in turns to bring a prayer for the day as well as using the resources on the Chaplaincy website.  They also took the opportunity to access the Newsround website and see what was being reported around the world.   This is a great way to live out our Mission Statement Theme about fairness, care and compassion.  If we don't know what is going on in the world, we become a little too insular and we become the centre of our own universe and this can mean we are ignorant of the suffering of others around the world.  How can we work for justice if we don't appreciate that there is injustice?  

  What I like about the Newsround website though is that their bulletins also cover good news stories (like our Weekly Prayer Video) which give us hope!
