Mid-Winter Festival of St John: Friday 24th June, 6pm

In the dark of the early evening on one of the longest nights of the year we celebrate our annual Mid-Winter Festival of St John. It’s a beautiful festival marked by a multitude of handmade lanterns. Every year the children prepare their lanterns in the preceding weeks. Older classes create lanterns out of complex geometric forms, while younger classes focus on the colourful windows.

The Mid-Winter Festival of St John seeks to give new life to universal truths that play an important role in moral education. One such truth is that when things are dark, sad or seemingly unbearable, somewhere close by is the gift, light or valuable learning that the seemingly hopeless situation presents. The true light shines on, even in darkness.
