Reflection at Stella Maris
Reflection is a really important part of life at Stella Maris. All year groups begin their day with reflection time. Our reflection monitors are also important as they help to plan, set up and take ownership of the reflection time, depending on which year group they are in.
"I used to believe that prayer changes things, but now I know that prayer changes us, and we change things." Saint Teresa of Calcutta

Parent and Child Prayer Harvest Breakfast - October 2021
Parents and children were invited to join us in school for a Harvest Parent and Child Prayer Breakfast. It was such a lovely reflection, helping us to think about thanksgiving and harvest time. The Imps children helped to create a video to share, telling us all about the things they are thankful for. We listened to a song called 'The Blessing' and thought about what we were thankful for. We also prayed together to say thank you for all of the things we have and asked for help for those who are struggling.
We then shared breakfast together. It was lovely for the children the children to share with their families the importance of reflection at Stella Maris.

Thinking about Mary in the Month of May....
The children and staff shared a reflection about Mary and then spent some time outside with Mary in the Peace Garden. The children were invited to lay flowers, say prayers etc. Some of the children wrote their own prayers to Mary at home. The flowers were then placed beside our whole school display dedicated to Mary.
