We walk on Holy Ground – Year 5 Retreat to Holy Island

Year 5 had a wonderful 3 days away as part of their Retreat.  Entitled ‘We walk on Holy Ground’, the children began their time with a boat trip at Seahouses before being escorted across the causeway, on foot, by Patrick Norris.  Our time on the island included a visit to the priory and the castle.  We learned about Saint Aidan and St. Cuthbert and during our prayer time together, we placed a heart in our shoe to remind us that we walk on Holy Ground, where important Saints have walked before us.

On our final day, we visited Bamburgh castle and then went back to Seahouses for some delicious fish and chips.  Despite the rain, we all had the best time.
