To mark the beginning of Lent, we held our Lenten Friends Assembly in the Chaplin Theatre on Wednesday. The Prep School watched a video put together by 5L which gave them ideas for how they can participate in Lenten Friends. This is an optional, but highly encouraged, Vinehall tradition where the children choose a name from a box and they pledge to do secret acts of kindness for that person throughout Lent.

Our aim is to encourage everyone to go out of their way to discreetly warm the hearts of their Lenten Friend by doing kind deeds. They may tidy their peg/locker/sports bag, hold doors open, give genuine compliments, play with them more than usual, say kind things to others about them, find lost things and more. The children are sure to have more wonderful ideas.
