Seeds of faith sown in Easter show
THE story of Easter came to life in Terranora last Friday.
Students at Lindisfarne Anglican Grammar School used drama, music and prayer to tell the story of the resurrection and share the true meaning of Easter.
Father Glen Loughrey said all students in Years 5 and 6 took part in the dramatisation, which followed an Easter service.
“The students did this for the first time last year and it was very successful,” Fr Loughrey said.
“Each class is given a section of the story to tell.
“The students and teachers work on their sections together and this means instead of having just one Jesus or one Judas, we have one of each class.”
Fr Loughrey said the activity allowed the students to understand how different parts of the Easter story fitted together.
“It allows them to be part of the story and it gives them another perspective about Easter,” Fr Loughrey said.
“It really shows them what Easter is all about, aside from the holidays and the chocolate eggs.”
Fr Loughrey said the Easter dramatisation was a hit with parents who attended the service.
“Parents and friends were very happy with it,” Fr Loughrey said.
“It is a very strong and powerful presentation and it leaves the audience very emotional.
“The students and teachers put it all together themselves. They do the actions and the costumes.”
The actors donned traditional costumes for the performance, which was enacted at the Lindisfarne Anglican Grammar School’s Mahers Lane campus.
Students who played the part of Jesus wore the thorn of crowns above their heads as they carried a wooden cross through the aisle.
Students are now prepared for their holidays after exploring the meaning of Easter.
