Saint Andrew Assembly
Our local Vicar visited our school to talk about Saint Andrew, whose celebration day is tomorrow, 30th November.
We found out that Saint Andrew was a fisherman who was helped by Jesus when they were struggling to gather food. After asking for help from Jesus, their empty nets started to overflow with fish. This was one of Jesus’ first miracles. After this many of the fishermen decided to become disciples and follow Jesus.
We also spoke about how Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice of death to help the people of the world.
After the resurrection, Saint Andrew travelled around the world to follow in Jesus’ footsteps and help people. We spoke about the 3000 mile journey he did.
The King of Scotland once seen Saint Andrew in a dream when he was worrying about a battle who reassured him that he would win. The King then awoke to see the cross of Saint Andrew in the sky. This is why the Scotland flag contains the cross and Saint Andrew and why Saint Andrew is the Patron Saint of Scotland.
