Weekly Prayer

Theme: Creation / Environment written by Sixth Form students

“Let us make man in our own image, in the likeness of ourselves, and let them be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the cattle, all the wild beasts and all the reptiles that crawl upon the earth.”  (Genesis 1:26)

It is said that on the first day, God separated the light from the darkness. Many of us will experience darkness throughout this week – but if we look to God the light is never far.

One of our Year 10 students, Charlotte Payne, has been offered a place to dance at the Dance World Cup in Portugal. Of this opportunity, Charlotte said:

"I danced about seven dances for the England panel to judge. Out of the whole of England I got three dances through to the World Cup, which will be in Portugal.

“My modern solo came first in the whole of England for my age group, as did my ballet solo. My song and dance solo was also chosen, which I will be performing with my friend, Amy.

“Some other members of my dance school have also been offered a chance to dance for the World Cup. It is a huge achievement for us all. I feel so happy to be representing England and to be competing against other countries.”

We wish Charlotte the best of luck.
