It has been a month of many different events. We’ve seen the school break up for the summer holidays. That means we’ve seen the children of year six move off to begin their time at senior school. This year, the children of year six are going to seven different schools. Each class of year six children at the schools in the deanery go each year to Saint Margaret’s Church, which stands right next to Westminster Abbey, for the school leavers’ service. I can’t remember exactly how many schools came, but the church was filled to capacity with just one class from each! The service was good, with hymns and readings suited to the children all preparing to move on. There was even a very good performance by a young boy who played a solo on the piano. Saint Margaret’s itself is a wonderful Church and well worth a look in. I’m sure it gets overlooked by its much larger neighbours all around!
