Our Education Team had an incredibly busy week hosting schools at this year’s Life Of Christ. With nearly 4000 children attending, from a huge variety of schools, including Primary, Secondary, Catholic, Anglican, Community Schools, Steiner, Independent prep and senior schools, we were honoured to welcome you all to the performances. It is amazing to see how far some groups travelled to get to Wintershall. Some had rain, others had bright sunshine, but whatever the weather, all groups enjoyed this highly immersive theatre experience, bringing scripture to life in a new way. Here is some of our feedback:
The realism and authenticity of the drama brought the story of Jesus to life
We absolutely loved the day. It was an extremely well organised and polished performance. From the moment we arrived we felt cared for and looked after.
Having seen the play, with the current year 5, I am looking forward to using the production images in my year 6 RE lessons next year. Such a valuable learning experience. Unforgettable.
We liked being in the middle of the action when the actors came into the audience
Children could recognise some of the stories they know and have learned about. They enjoyed the humour and the real humanity of all the characters. Some told their parents about the performance in such detail, the parents were amazed how much impact it had on them
Another amazing year at Wintershall for us – thank you especially to the education team for making our visit so smooth and worry-free – you are incredible! We always feel very supported and able to ask questions. Look forward to next year!
