In preparation for Easter, St Joseph’s School gave its kindergarten pupils a hands-on re-enactment of The Last Supper.
Religious Education Coordinator Lloyd Reidy explained the significance of the food shared and the importance of sharing the meal as a group.
Some of the children baked the bread and helped with preparations.
Staff from the kindergarten classes helped the children understand the importance of the event and dressed in costume to add to the atmosphere.
Principal Carmen Cox said the interactive method of teaching was well received by the students.
“The students are only four-years-old, but they learnt what happened that night and understand it was special,” she said.
The teachings were in-line with the school’s ethos, “Centred on Jesus Christ, we inspire and nurture our students to reach their full potential in a Catholic school community”.
The Northam-based primary school held age-appropriate activities for its pupils throughout Holy Week, including an interactive Stations of the Cross for its pre-primary classes and Stations of the Cross for the older students.
