Christian Basis

As Moses approached the presence of God in the burning bush, God said to him: ˜Do not come any closer. Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground. ‘ This scene captures something of the essence of ˜reverence’ and ‘respect’. Respect for God extends to respect for all creation, including all people, animals and our environment. In school children and adults are expected to show respect for each other, their belongings and their environment. Reverence takes this response a step further and will include aspects of worship such as awe and wonder, surrender and sacrifice.

Do to others as you would have them do to you. Luke 6 v 31

We should reflect on the following questions: How are pupils given the opportunity in school to experience feelings of awe, wonder and mystery? Are there places and objects around the school that are considered ‘holy or sacred’, which help children reflect and wonder at the nature of God? What special words, sacramental actions or religious symbols are used to challenge and inform children’s understanding of God? How do children show their respect for each other and adults in the school community? How are children encouraged to Value and respect their own and other people’s belongings? How do policies and practices in the school engender respect for all members of the school community?

There are Values Home Sheets from Imaginor. These are designed to complement the conversations we have in school and we trust will provide much food for thought and conversation.
