Year 6 Pupils Produce Westminster Abbey Easter Garden

Published Tuesday 9th of April 2013 11:47:29 AM

Sutton Valence Preparatory School, near Maidstone, Kent is incredibly proud to have been asked to prepare an Easter Garden for Westminster Abbey. Every year a different school produces an Easter Garden for the Abbey. �It is a particular delight to have the Preparatory School doing it for us this year�, said The Venerable Dr Jane Hedges, Canon of Westminster.

The garden was installed on Holy Saturday (30th March) and viewed for the first time at the Abbey�s Easter Vigil Service on Saturday evening. It will stay on display throughout Eastertide (for 6 weeks) and will be seen by many thousands of their visitors. At the Easter Garden, people will be able to read the Easter story, say a prayer and light a candle and so the garden will be very much a spiritual focal point during this very important season of the Christian year.

Mrs Elizabeth Betts, Head of Art and Design Technology, has conceived the design and has had help from Year 6 artists in the making. �It�s a great honour to be asked to make the garden�, she said. �I hope that it reflects the Easter story and brings pleasure to those who see it. The children have worked hard on their pieces and we are all very proud to be involved.�
