Easter Assembly is always a good time to celebrate Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and His resurrection and what this means for those who put their trust in Him alone.
At the end of Term 2, we held our annual Easter Assembly and it was lovely to see so many families joining us. You may wonder about the timing but that was due to COVID, as so many of our events have been! It is always a good time to celebrate Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and His resurrection and what this means for those who put their trust in Him alone. We were sad not to be able to share it with our community at the end of last term, and sad for me personally as it is my favourite event of the year and I did not want to miss it in my last year at Wilson!
We began by singing Cornerstone altogether and then enjoyed the Year 5 class performing a dance to Colin Buchanan’s popular song, Super Saviour, where we learn that Jesus is the death crusher and sin smasher!
The Year 4HC class reminded us of the reason Jesus had to die as they did a short play, and then the Year 2s reminded us of the peace that we have because of what Jesus has done for us. We no longer have to worry about our eternal future – we just need to believe in Jesus and what He has done for us.
We listened to a poem from the Year 3 students who reminded us of the traditional colours of Easter and what they represent – like red for the blood that was spilled for our forgiveness.
The Year 4S students then told us what Easter means to them and showed us their amazing artwork reflecting Easter through an outstanding video.
Our joyful and enthusiastic Year 1 classes joined together to dance and sing their way through Oh! Happy Day, which had us all bouncing in our seats! It was indeed a happy day when Jesus took our sins away!
We continued the focus on the resurrection with an Easter Poem by our Year 6 class. We serve a risen Saviour, One who could not be held down by death or a grave; One who overcame the power of death and sin, to be raised and live forever.
Lastly, we heard from our beautiful choir led by Miss Goh and were reminded that we are indeed children of the risen King!
Our Chaplain, Mrs Theaart then provided us with a delicious afternoon tea and some of the staff shared what Easter means to them. It was a wonderful time of fellowship and connecting, made all the more special because we have had so few opportunities to do this during COVID.
