St Peter’s Woodlands’ students visit the beautiful St Peter’s Cathedral for the Combined Anglican Schools’ Service.
On Tuesday the 18 May, the students from Year 7LL visited the beautiful St Peter’s Cathedral for the Combined Anglican Schools’ Service. There were many other schools that attended, including Walford, St Peter’s Boys, St Peter’s Girls, Pulteney Grammar and Investigator College.
We began with a welcome from Rev’d Tracey at Investigator College, informing us about the history of St Peter’s Anglican Cathedral and how it all began. Dividing into six groups, we split up into various areas in the Cathedral. Activities included learning music, an interview with Bishop Chris McLeod, a scavenger hunt down in the crypt, writing prayers with chalk on the asphalt outside, God’s view seating and yoga prayers.
After the fun activities, we all gathered together for a final hour-long service, conducted by the priests, reverends and staff from all schools. Incorporated in the service were all the different skills we learnt, from the music to the yoga prayers. Students from each of the schools either read a bible reading or prayer.
The experience was a fun learning opportunity for class 7LL, teaching us new skills about the Christian history and lifestyle of St Peter’s Anglican Cathedral.
Thank you to students Sebi T. and Jesse N. for sharing this story.
