Jesus Discovery in the Classroom
We aim to deepen the relationship between God and His sons and daughters by making Him a part of their daily life in school. Through prayers, stories and activities, the children are made aware of God’s awesome presence.
We begin every year with the Story of Creation, which we consider as the best starting point of the unfolding of the beautiful love story of God and His children. To be a witness to God’s glory in Creation and to embrace the truth that the same hands that made the stars and the moon, the mountains, the fields, the trees, the creatures of the sky, the land and water, made me makes it easier to believe that I am special. We know that accepting one’s giftedness helps the child grow loving oneself and loving others.
Getting to know Jesus and His special friends in the Bible help in teaching children Christian values. Values of the month give emphasis to attitudes we want our children to inculcate such as helpfulness, generosity, prayerfulness, obedience, and love.
As in all areas of our curriculum, we use a holistic approach and a variety of methods to be able to make lessons of truth come alive. An area in each classroom is devoted as a Jesus Discovery corner equipped with children’s bibles, storybooks, felt activities and toys. Every week, a time block per class is prepared as a Jesus Discovery class where the teacher and children sing songs of praise and pray together, listen to stories and engage in art activities, games and music and movement.
Children come to know Jesus and easily believe that He is real and that He is in the here and the now.
