Easter Creative Learning Day & Service, March 2016
On Thursday, 24 March students in Years 7-9 took part in a Creative Learning Day exploring the true message of Easter. Students enjoyed a variety of activities including writing poetry, performing dramas and designing posters; all of these were designed to encourage students to think about what the message of Easter is and what it means for us as individuals and as a school community.
Later in the morning, all year groups had their own Celebration Assemblies during which form tutors and progress leaders recognised individual successes throughout the term.
Finally, during the afternoon the entire school came together as one community to celebrate Easter. The service was led by our school chaplain, the Reverend Mike Griffin, and students from across the year groups took part in the readings. In addition to the whole school joining in hymns, the year 7 choir and individual soloists provided beautiful accompanying music to the service.
"Our two daughters have had the best start in life thanks to the caring, enthusiastic and hardworking staff of Archbishop Blanch School. Choosing the right secondary school for one's children is such a difficult task, but we could feel the special ethos of ABS on our first visit. You inspire your pupils to achieve the academic heights of which they are capable in a happy, safe and vibrant environment."
