St. Martin’s PS Tranent
St Martin’s pupils created a display for Catholic Education week to illustrate what they have learned about how Pope Francis has compared mercy to watering barren land. Each child in the school was given time to reflect on times they had shown mercy to others. They then wrote a little bit about how we had shown mercy and coloured in the flowers showing new life. The photograph shows some P4 pupils with part of the display.
