Advent School Assembly - Sample

Here are some sample slides from the Powerpoint presentation:

Four more weeks to Christmas - Extract
It was St Andrews Day and Rocco and his family were on their way to church. He couldn't believe it was still 4 more weeks till Christmas. He hated waiting. He wanted a new bike for Christmas and his dad had told him that he might get one but they were not sure. He also hated not knowing and was still thinking about it when they were in the church. "Mum I really want that bike!" Rocco whispered to his mum as they sat down on the pews. Mum shushed Rocco and pointed to the priest who was carefully lighting the first candle on the wreath and was saying a prayer of hope.

That week Rocco kept asking his mum and dad to get the bike for him and even showed them the one he liked on the internet. They said it was a little too expensive and smiled. At least they hadn't said no he thought and kept hoping all week. The following Sunday they all went to church again and this time the priest lit two candles and said the second was for the peace Jesus brings to all of us.
