To help build awareness and knowledge around the many saints celebrated during the annual event, students and staff of St Patrick’s were tasked to do some research and to come to school dressed as the saint of their choosing for the day.
The day began with a Mass attended by the parish community where students entered the Church following the altar servers dressed as various saints.
A number of new songs were sung during the Mass and afterwards the congregation watched a reflection video that explored the life of a number of saints.
In class students shared their research about their saint, as teachers explained the ‘sainthood process’ that is undertaken before a saint is declared.
The day proved to be a valuable learning experience for the students with many asking each another questions about their costumes and the saints they represented throughout the day.
