On Monday, September 5th, The Great Lesson of Creation was presented to the students in the combined Lower and Upper Primary class. While the story unfolded, the third year students conducted science experiments that exemplified some of the scientific laws that were at work when the universe was formed. Once complete, the 4th and 5th year students contrasted The Great Lesson of Creation with presentations of the Hindu, Celtic and Egyptian creation stories, as well as their own unique story, all of which they researched and prepared in Vicky’s creative arts programme. The presentation of other creation stories serves to broaden the awareness and perspectives of children by revealing how the same event could have multiple interpretations.
Students receive The Great Lesson of Creation annually during their primary education years. Children at each grade level continue to derive value from the story because as their awareness and experience grows, they are able to see an increasing number of connections between the story, their other areas of study, and the world around them, further deepening their understanding.
