Why do we not say Alleluia during Lent?

Alleluia means "Praise God". It is a special word that helps us joyfully proclaim that Jesus is risen. We are so happy that we want to sing, pray and shout the word Alleluia.
By not saying the word Alleluia for 40 days during Lent we will hopefully appreciate just how joyful the word is.
TEAM Benedict held an assembly on Shrove Tuesday for the whole school explaining this and then they put away the letters that spell Alleluia. We will get them out again after Easter and rejoice once more.
