Our Morning Meditation


Three times a week. everyone in our school begins their day with meditation. In Senior S, we sit around the prayer cloth that has been carefully prepared by members of the class. With our eyes closed we focus on breathing deeply and saying "Maranatha" (Aramaic for "Come Lord Jesus") to ourselves for 5-10 minutes.
Some of the health benefits of meditation are:
- Makes you feel calm
- It makes you healthier
- It lowers stress levels
- It helps you sleep better
- Structured time to be prayerful

Genius hour in Term 4

Senior S has been hard at work over the last two terms, researching topics that interest them, yet which they don't know much about. From the effects of optical illusions on the brain to the benefits of working and assistance dogs, there were many fascinating projects that have expanded the knowledge base and understanding of the whole class.
