Words from our Vicar
"Shalbourne School is a community rooted in the faith of Christ. Both staff and children engage fully in learning about Jesus, and also about church life. In the past, I have taught the children about the Eucharist (Holy Communion) and shared bread and grape juice with them to enable them to engage with the story of the Last Supper.
The school has a close relationship with the local church, St Michael and All Angels, and regularly comes into the church during the school year to celebrate various festivals and also for the Leavers’ Service. The children sing brilliantly and their written prayers (used during their church services) reflect a growing sense of their own faith in God. On Ash Wednesday, nearly all the children accept the invitation to receive the mark of the cross in ash on their foreheads. Over the five years I have been visiting the school, several pupils have been baptised and confirmed.
I love coming to Shalbourne School!"
