Matthew Gibney Catholic Primary School High Wycombe has last month continued its tradition of involving its students in a dramatic musical presentation of the Easter story.
It has become a highlight of the school’s liturgical calendar, allowing the children from Pre-primary to Year 6 to take roles as apostles, soldiers, women of Jerusalem, and the High Priests.
This year, Jesus was played by Year 6 student Joshua Petrella.
Arts specialist Mrs Teresa Aldred arranged and directed the entire production.
The presentation was well-attended by the school’s parent community, parishioners of St Francis of Assisi Church, and Maida Vale Parish Priest Father Francis Ly.
“The presentation was a very moving and powerful re-enactment of the Easter Story, allowing all of us to walk closer with Jesus in his final hours, before His Resurrection on Easter Sunday,” a school representative said.
Matthew Gibney Catholic Primary School was opened in 1991 to meet the growing needs for Catholic Primary education within the eastern region.
