While at the school, we took the opportunity to ask students ‘What does Easter mean to you?’ All the responses were great and we’ve shared four of them below.
“Easter to me is a time to be thankful for my family and all they do for me. It is a time for acts of kindness and service, just as Jesus did for us. Easter is when Jesus was resurrected and we celebrate his return to us."
“Easter means to me, being thankful. It is not about what we have but what we need in life. Like Jesus in the desert, we have fasted for 40 days. We need to remember what we learned."
“Easter for me is about loving Jesus. He went into the desert for 40 days and nights and went through all the events of Holy Week. But Jesus came back to us on Easter Sunday, because he loves us.”
“During Lent we fast, not just from food but from negativity and sadness. At Easter Jesus is resurrected. We celebrate Jesus and our new life!”
