Our Promise to Greenwich

James Wolfe Primary School, Randall Place Campus

Randall Place, Greenwich, SE10 9LA

This year at Christmas, the students of James Wolfe will be focusing on how we can reach out to people in our community. Each class has written a letter that will bring Christmas joy and cheer to people and senior citizens in our community. Classes have also been learning about the promises they can make to ensure they, too, will become positive role models within the world.

The stars at Randall Place represent making a Christmas wish that then turns into a promise.

The window can be viewed from 3:30 p.m. until the school gates are closed. 

The window will be ready by 3:30 p.m. on 12 December. The children will be singing Christmas carols to open the window.

Peace Against War

28 King George Street

Greenwich, SE10 8QD

In 1950, PIcasso described how his father had taught him to paint doves, declaring, “I Stand for life against death; I stand for peace against war.”

This window stands for life against death, peace against war, and light against dark.

This window will be on display all day, but will be more exciting at night.

The window will be ready by 7 p.m. on 11 December. Neighbours and all-comers are warmly invited to join us at 7 p.m. for mulled wine, and quite possibly, mince pies.

The Jesse Tree tells the story from Creation to Christmas; from the Promise to the Saviour.

8 December: Cutty Sark

December 8, 2016

Follow That Star

Cutty Sark

Cutty Sark Gardens, King William Walk, Greenwich, SE10 9HT

For centuries, ships found their way at sea by watching the night sky. The Cutty Sark, which was launched in 1869, was no different. The Cutty Sark also would follow the stars to bring the sailors back to their families in time for Christmas.

We would like to thank all of the families who helped us create this window at our Christmas craft workshop.

The window can be seen at any time, but it is best viewed after dark.
