Year 6 Leavers Service 2019

'The Ingredients of Friendship'


The whole school community came together to celebrate with the Year 6 children. They led a beautiful service at St Mark's Church using the theme of Friendship to reflect on their time at primary school. 


"There’s a miracle of friendship that dwells within our hearts

And we don’t know how it happens, or where it all starts

But the happiness it brings us always gives a special lift

And we realise that friendship, is God’s most perfect gift!"


The children thought about the ingredients of true friendship and broke it down into four categories; Unconditional Love, Unwavering Support, Willingness to Challenge and Full of Grace. Each of these were explained and linked to meaningful quotes from the Bible. The Year 6 children also wrote dedications to their friends and received a stunning, personalised spoon with the message "True friends are never apart, may be in distance but never in heart". There was not a dry eye in sight while they read their reflective poems, describing what St Mark's meant to them. 


We are extremely proud of Year 6 and the service was a wonderful way to cherish their time at St Mark's and start them on their journey to secondary school. Well Done Year 6, you were true St Mark's sticks of rock!
