Pupils embark on Easter Journey during Holy Week

First published on: 27th March 2024

Pupils from a Church of England primary school have been on an interactive ‘Easter Journey’ during Holy Week.

The children, from Bishop’s Primary in Newbiggin, attended St Andrew’s and St Mark’s Church in the town, to experience the story of Holy Week and the resurrection.

Headteacher Clare Marriott said the pupils enjoyed the event, which included information tents and activities to break down the historic story.

She added: “The Easter Journey gave the children an opportunity to visit St Andrew's and St Mark's in Newbiggin to experience the story of Holy Week and the resurrection in a creative, immersive and accessible way.

“The facilitators and organisers were so patient and really helped the children to understand and reflect on what can, for some, be a difficult concept. We are always grateful to be invited to be part of this.”

Bishop's Church of England Primary School is part of the Northumberland Church of England Academy Trust based in South East Northumberland.
