On Monday 5th March, Father George visited the Early Learning Centre to bless the children and the staff during their Orthodox Studies lesson.
Together the children and Father George practised making the sign of the cross. He sprinkled Holy water on the children and blessed them.
Archie Borneman volunteered to dress up in the religious clothes similar to Father George’s robes. He was able to practice blessing his peers, just as he had watched Father George do.
Mrs Popi Roumeliotis, their Orthodox Studies teacher, took the opportunity to discuss the significance of the blessing.
The learning experiences in ELC are so varied, engaging and create many wonderful memories for students, parents and staff. Well done Archie!
