New furniture and Part 1 of our school link project based on the Ngara Crosses project - sorry this is a long newsletter but mostly pictures!

Thanks to a donation from a church in America that one of our supporters attends we have been able to replace and add to the school's stock, particularly in terms of furniture and text books.

A joint project with Waymarks Education Centre, Moiís Bridge, Kenya and Church schools in the Diocese of Coventry

The staff, at the school in Kenya, worked with the children , talking about the cross and  itís importance as a Christian symbol. They showed the children the pictures which are in the Ngara Crosses pack. The children were encouraged to investigate their environment and select materials that they could use in making their cross. They were asked to create and give a short explanation of their cross.

 

CAROL AND YVONNA both in Standard 5 

 

"We have used green twigs that are shaggy to represent the disobedience that Jesus died for on the cross to cleanse humanity."

 IVY and TABITHA both in Standard 7  
 

"We have collected wood and bottle tops red in colour to make a cross. Red colour represent the blood of Jesus that was meant to wash our sins."

 

 

PURITY in standard 7

 

"I have made a cross using round clay balls to  represent Jesus as creator of the universe."
 

MARK AND BENJAMIN both in standard 7

 We also have images taken by the children at one of the link schools in Coventry, All Saints CofE Primary and will share them in due course.
