On Holy Thursday a number of students carried a cross from classroom to classroom as the Stations of the Cross were read out.

Three crosses were also put on a hill in the school grounds for the week and students took the opportunity to place prayers and intentions around them.

Anne Reynolds, Chaplaincy Co-ordinator for the St Pius learning community said, “The students were fantastic and took every opportunity to get involved with things.  I am sure that the events in school allowed our students to more fully explore and understand the meaning of Holy Week and Easter.”
