This morning, the church hosted an Experience Easter event for the whole school. Areas around the church related to different parts of the Easter story and message. The children explored and reflected on activities to help discover the meaning of the Easter story. This afternoon we returned to the church for our Easter service when Rev Evelyn along with readers from Orchard Class re-told the story again. Part of the service involved the Worship Council, along with Mrs Bloomer, acting out Jesus’s arrival into Jerusalem with enthusiastic palm leaf waving by Willow Class. Elm Class recited an Easter acrostic poem and reflective prayers were read by other members of Orchard Class. The quality of the singing was excellent as usual. We hope that everyone who was able to join us agreed that it was a lovely service.
Thank you to Rev Evelyn, Mrs Bloomer and the Church community for organising the Experience Easter event. Thanks also to the Friends of School for providing refreshments back at school after the service.
