On Wednesday, 11th October, our community assembly team, which is led by Rev. Janet, came to school to share the story of Ruth and Naomi. These ladies from the Bible had travelled abroad with their families in search of food but Naomi eventually decided to return home. The children watched as Ruth remained loyal to Naomi and travelled back with her to Bethlehem to work in the fields. The story ended with Naomi working in the fields belonging to a landowner called Boaz. In time, Ruth and Boaz were able to marry.
The story of Ruth and her mother-in-law Naomi teaches us the importance of being loyal and the blessings that God brings when we are kind-hearted and humble.
