Wishing Tree

Art Made by St. Ursula’s School

Our Wishing Tree can be seen in front of the Presbytery of the church on 68 Crooms Hill. The artwork was completed by the school’s art department with assistance from the St. Ursula’s students.

A wishing tree allows a person to wish for something and tie it to the tree in the hope it will come true.

Instead of wishing for ‘something’ our wishing tree “wishes” everyone positivity.

Tidings of Comfort & Joy delivered through words of comfort, affirmations and words to inspire, little notes of positivity.

The window is best viewed in the daytime, due to the light.

Good Intentions

Randall Place, Greenwich, SE10 9LA

This year at James Wolfe Primary School, we have used the lead up to the festive period as a time of reflection. We have been remembering all of the positive and joyous memories that we have experienced both in school and at home over the past year.

We have created a memory bank to store our favourite moments. While taking the time to reflect, we have also set an intention for the new year to welcome more joyous experiences into our lives.

Our artwork reflects and holds these intentions.   

As we look forward to the new year of 2023, we hope for a bright and happy future for all.

The window faces the road on Randall Place, so can be viewed at any time. The window will be ready by 3:30 p.m.

Cutty Sark

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

Today’s colourful Advent Window can be found at the Cutty Sark. It was created by artist Cash Aspeek and pupils from the Resource base at Athelney Primary School in Lewisham.

Cash drew inspiration from wool, one of Cutty Sark’s cargoes, and the well-known patterns found on comforting wooly jumpers used in Scotland, Cutty Sark’s birthplace. Cash worked with the students over the course of a day, encouraging the creation of geometric patterns using square sheets of celophane on clear acetate.

The wonderful window can be found on north-east end of the ship (the side closest to the Thames).

The Advent Window is best seen after dark. It will be ready at 5 p.m. on 6 December.
