Oranges and LemonsPosted on: 21/03/2019
‘Oranges and Lemons,’ say the bells of St Clement's!
The bells of St Clement Danes Church rang out this afternoon as the whole school paraded down the street for the most special day of our school year, the annual Oranges and Lemons festival.
Just as it had been for the children of St Clement Danes parish 99 years ago at the very first Oranges and Lemons service, today our service opened with the moving sound of handbells ringing the famous nursery rhyme. Continuing the century-old tradition, at the end of the service today each child was given an orange and a lemon as they left the church.
This year, 2019, marks the 50th anniversary of the first human landing on the moon. In celebration of this important moment in history, this afternoon the children of St Clement Danes took everyone on A Space Adventure. The children were absolute STARS and their performances were truly OUT OF THIS WORLD!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for this very special afternoon. What a spectacular, astronomical delight it was!
