Stations of the Cross 2021

The children of Holy Cross have been working extremely hard to use their creative and verbal skills to put this video together. This video tells the story of Jesus’ difficult journey to sacrifice his life to save us so that we could all live, his crucifixion on Good Friday. Today, we travel along a path with Jesus, stopping at each station to say the selected prayers and reflections. Miss Duong.

They listened to a song and then performed it in in a very short space of time to create their own version of our class Nativity. What an amazing job Year 2! A very proud Miss Duong.
