Prayer is an important and intrinsic part of school life here at St Giles’. Prayer is at the epicentre of everything we do at St Giles’ and all of the children, throughout the school, share in prayer on a daily basis. Our children are taught to open their hearts and talk to God. Every class partakes in daily prayers which are said at different stages in the day.
Father in heaven, you love me, you're with me day and night. I want to love you always; in all I do and say. I'll try to please you, Father, bless me through the day. Amen.
Grace before lunch
Bless us, O Lord, as we sit together. Bless the food we eat today. Bless the hands that make the food. Bless us, O Lord, Amen.
End of the day prayer
God our Father, I come to say, thank you for your love today. Thank you for my family and all the friends you give to me. Guard me in the dark of night and in the morning send your light. Amen.
Our school prayer
Speak to us, Lord, and help us to listen
Teach us to grow in faith and love.
Guide us, and
Inspire us to
Look beyond ourselves and
Enlighten our homes, school and world as we
Share our call to holiness.
