As part of our school’s preparations for Holy Week, the whole school will be gathering at 9am each morning in the hall throughout week 9 to participate in a short re-enactment of the events of Holy Week.
Year 1P and Year 2T will be performing on Monday the 26th March at 9am. Parents are most welcome to come along and watch. This will be no longer than 15-20 minutes. There are a few different parts that will be allocated across the classes.
Costume ideas for parts as follows:
· Jesus/Disciples – an old sheet/pillow slip with a piece cut out for the head and arms. An oversized t-shirt would also the trick. Tie a rope/sash around the waist.
· Palm wavers: A towel/tea towel with a rope/lacky band over their head.
· Readers – To stay in school uniform. If your child receives a reading part to practise at home they do not require a costume.
Please feel free to use your own creative licence to modify costumes as you wish. Costumes should be simple and only take 1-5 minutes to put together. We are also happy with something as simple as a head piece, or anything that the children can throw over their uniform to emphasise the era. School uniforms can with be worn under the costume, or be packed into the children’s school bags to change into, following the performance.
Please have the children ready in their costume on the Monday morning during gathering time. We will go straight across to the hall to get ready on stage when the bell rings at 8:45am.
Thank you for your support in preparing this special liturgy. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.
