Community Reflection Time at Kensworth

Community Reflection Time at Kensworth

Kensworth Academy wanted to offer hope and thanks, bringing the community together to support one another. Over a period of five weeks from April until the end of term they created prayer stations so that children, along with their families, could have reflection time at home and in the community. A large cross was placed on the school grounds and as part of their daily exercise children were invited to come and place stone/pebble in it. A member of staff cycled a 35 mile round-trip to place their stone in the school cross.

The cross has now become a community focus and the school held their Remembrance Service around it.
By the cross, a ‘Thanks Wall’ was erected during Lockdown. Children and their families had the opportunity to thank God for the people who care for others such as doctors, nurses, health care workers and their own family and friends. On the wall there were many drawings and messages of thanks. The pebbles originally laid in the school cross will now be attached to the wall in a cross outline.
