Dear Parents, Carers and Friends

In assemblies this week, Mrs Paul, one of our teachers of RE, spoke about Christmas and whether the message of Christmas has been lost and buried under an avalanche of commercialisation.  Christmas is a day celebrating the birth of Jesus and should be a time of good will to all, yet it can be a very stressful, expensive, argumentative and lonely time.  Mrs Paul read out a letter from Father Christmas and cited the example of Christmas cards which bear no relation to the origin or meaning of Christmas but carry symbols we now recognise as associated with the holiday season, e.g. Santa Claus who, in his modern incarnation, was probably invented by the Coca Cola company!

In her message to students in the assemblies Mrs Paul asked them to consider the true meaning of Christmas and to write to her by 30th November at scrooge@ladylumleys.net with their reasons why we should still celebrate this time of year and try to persuade her to change her mind.
