It was a great privilege to stop for 45 minutes and reflect on the story of Easter in today’s school assembly. Thank you to all the students and
teachers for your commitment in bringing the story of Easter alive through Bible readings, singing, dance, drama and prayer.
The Worship Team lead assembly with the singing of ‘Man of Sorrows’ and ‘O Praise the Name”. This was followed by The Vocal Ensemble performing ‘How Can
I Keep From Singing’.
‘A Tale of Three Trees’ was performed by Year 9 and 10 Drama. The story depicts three trees on a mountain who each dream of what they want to be when they
grow up. Years pass and eventually the woodchoppers cut down each tree, but their destiny is not quite what they had in mind, but far more significant
- serving Jesus.
Year 9 Dance elective performed a work showing the struggle and suffering of Jesus on the cross and His victory in the resurrection. This is the culmination
of their work this term studying classical ballet and developing the work in a contemporary ballet style depicting the Easter story.
The Bible readers: Marie, Noah, Eleanor, Cheryl, Baptiste and John read excepts from the Gospel of Matthew.
Over the Easter break, may the depth of Jesus’ love be evident as we reflect on His death and resurrection as a sacrifice for our sins. What a joy to have
the assurance of forgiveness and eternal life.
