This week we have been fortunate to have prayer spaces in the RE department. Prayer spaces is an opportunity for our students to explore their emotions and feelings, asking ‘big questions’, experiencing peace and stillness or thinking about self image.
There were a variety of activities set up, each one with a different focus. Our students prayers were collected on a ‘prayer wall’ and the amazing empathy, thoughtfulness and maturity once again shone through.
Whether students approached this with religious beliefs or as an atheist (or anywhere in between or beyond!) there is no doubt that this has been an valuable and memorable experience.
