Hugo Meynell is a church school and we enjoy excellent links with St John the Baptist Church, which is situated just two miles away in the village of Ashley.
Children from school visit church every year to participate in a range of craft activities inside the beautiful building. These visits usually coincide with the time that children are learning about the Christmas or Easter story.
In December, children worked with our church, St John’s in Ashley, to learn all about Christingles. Christingle means 'Christ's Light' and it is a symbol of the Christian faith. The candle reminds Christians of Jesus, the light of the world. Lots of churches around the country hold Christingle services around Christmas time, however, as, we were unable to do so in 2020 our children here at Hugo brought the service to you! We hope you will light a candle on Christmas Eve to celebrate the 'Light of the World'.
