Collective Worship

The beating heart of school life – life bringing and life giving.

Collective worship at Forest of Galtres Anglican Methodist Primary School is Rooted in our Christion vision, the bible, the church year and God’s love for all. It is inclusive, invitational and inspiring. It is educational in nature and does not make any assumptions of the world views of the collective. Our Church school worship is in line with the practices of the church, it is our Christian driver. It is a valued part of our school day and welcomes all.
