As part of our journey through Lent, in our final week of term students from across KS3 have had the opportunity to consider the journey that Jesus went on through Holy Week, as he made his way towards the cross at Easter. Journey to the Cross was an interactive journey of eight stations; at each station students read a Bible passage on which the station was based, a summary of what happened and how Jesus’s story is relevant today. They then had the opportunity to take part in an interactive activity to respond to what they had read and reflected upon. Activities included flower making, writing on leaves, asking questions, tying ribbons and finger print marking.
The Journey to the Cross was hosted by different members of our clergy team, our school chaplain and church youth workers throughout the week.
Student feedback has been very positive with one Year 9 student reflecting “I have really enjoyed this experience. I have found it enlightening and educational. It was really nice just to stop, take a minute out of my busy day and reflect and pray. I also loved learning about the Easter story, and this was a really nice opportunity to learn about it more; it was fun and engaging. I would love to do this again.”
