Kentish Express Ashford & District - - School Fete -

All of the chil­dren from Brabourne Pri­mary School took part in a pil­grim­age to the lo­cal church.

Around 100 pupils, along with teach­ers, walked across the fields to the Five Bells pub for re­fresh­ments be­fore head­ing to St Mary’s parish church last Fri­day.

Re­li­gious ed­u­ca­tion teacher Jackie Roach said: “We’re a Church of Eng­land school so we try to teach the chil­dren Chris­tian­ity in a fun way.

“Years 5 and 6 were learn­ing about pil­grim­ages so I thought we would ac­tu­ally do our own one. It was re­ally hot but they en­joyed it. There wasn’t one moan.”

Ev­ery child made a ban­ner with a Chris­tian or spir­i­tual mes­sage be­fore the pil­grim­age at 12.30pm.

Af­ter the pil­grim­age there was a short com­mu­nion ser­vice at 2.30pm.
