Young children are capable of spiritual experiences from an early age. Before they find the words to express it, they become aware of something other than themselves and their small worlds, something that is inspiring and good. They have a sense of God, and in teaching children how to pray, we give them a verbal vocabulary to express what they already experience. Praying with young children is a privilege and a joy. In introducing children to prayer in school we firstly celebrate with them the wonderful truth that they are loved by God. We encourage the children through communal and individual prayer and reflection to talk to God in a very natural way and to establish a relationship with God. Prayer is an integral part of each day in our school.
