Our School Prayers
The Lord’s Prayer:
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever, Amen.
Our school prayer: ‘Dear God, thank you for our school where we are happy to love, learn and pray together. Sorry for all the wrong things we all do. Please help us to show courage in and out of our school. Amen.’
