Ridley College Blessing of the Animals 2012

This morning some furry friends joined the Lower School students in chapel to celebrate St. Francis of Assis Day – the patron saint of animals and the environment. Students were allowed to bring a pet to chapel to be blessed by Father Jason as part of the special day.

The lesson of the chapel service was focused on how animals embody the IB learner profile by having such traits as being risk-takers, balanced, open-minded, and caring etc.
