Virtual Leavers' Service
Every Summer the SDBE organises Leavers' Services at Southwark Cathedral, inviting all Year 6 pupils at Church of England primary schools across the Diocese to celebrate this milestone in their journey of education. Pupils have the opportunity to reflect on their experiences, as well as look forward to the next step on their journey.
With the closure of the cathedral due to the COVID-19 pandemic we instead decided to hold this years' services virtually. The live stream and accompanying video were viewed more than a thousand times, and we are delighted that so many schools found joy in participating in this event.
