Exploring the Meaning of Easter

Students in the Primary School, and some in the High School, have used their Art lessons to explore the question “Jesus is…” to create a special art exhibition which will be on display in the Cafeteria on Good Friday.

In exploring this theme of Jesus, and Easter, the students have enjoyed experimenting with a range of mediums and techniques, to create their unique artwork. With a wide range of styles on display including paintings, 3D models, stop motion video and drawings, the exhibition has given students a chance to visually express their thoughts about Easter in a creative way. The Year 3 students, pictured, came up with designs for a stamp, which they cut out of styrofoam in reverse, and then used the stamping block to create their final prints.


Everyone’s Invited!

The exhibition is a joint effort with CityReach Oakden, and all of the students’ Easter Artwork will be on display in the Cafeteria on Good Friday.

Everyone is welcome to visit the exhibition and the CityReach Good Friday Services on April 19 at 9am and 11am.

The event is completely free along with free hot cross buns and coffee in the Cafeteria, while you view the art display.


Jesus is…

At Easter, we celebrate who Jesus is, and what he accomplished over 2,000 years ago. Jesus’ empty tomb is a window into a new and lasting hope beyond death. It’s an unshakeable hope in a happy-ever-after that won’t end. It’s a hope that outlasts the unexpected setbacks of life because it goes beyond life. It’s a hope that only comes from putting everything into hoping in Jesus Christ.

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” 1 Peter 1:3.
