Monday, 19th December – Today we proceeded with our Christmas programme. Our Year 7 students had the opportunity to reflect on various aspects of life related to the Christmas season. The theme discussed was ‘A Saviour is Born’, the news proclaimed by the angels to the shepherds when they announced the birth of Baby Jesus. The students had five different groups: Christmas at the MUSEUM, the Christmas tree and gifts, the advent calendar, the Christmas sweets, and the crib. The students had time to reflect on each theme and think about it. They then prayed the novena together.
Our Year 8 students reflected on the theme ‘Myself as part of the crib’. First, they discussed what virtues we find in five of the crib figures chosen. These were Mary, Joseph, the three kings, the shepherds of Bethlehem and Baby Jesus. Besides the singing, the discussions and time of prayer, they had the opportunity to reflect on how they can apply these virtues in everyday life.
The Year 9, Year 10 and Year 11 students watched the play ‘Bambini Misruqa’ and after they had a discussion on different aspects of the play.
We would like to thank a number of members of staff who worked together to give another great spiritual experience to our students.
