Term 1, 2021 would come to a fitting end this week as students celebrated their annual Easter Chapel service gathered together in the CGA for the first time in 12 months.
Our Primary students from Mt Ridley would be the first to return on Tuesday, followed by Secondary students on Wednesday and a Donnybrook service on Thursday. These events would mark the first time our Chapel sessions would return to in-person gatherings since March 2020 – previously replaced by Zoom webinars as a result of Covid-19 circumstances.
Having facilitated a number of Chapel sessions in-front of his laptop throughout 2020 and early 2021, Reverend Peter Waterhouse shared his thoughts on the significance of returning to the CGA and the importance of gathering together as a community. “Just as throughout the Bible, God gathers his people to hear Him speak, so too we gather as a sensory display of our corporate school identity and to hear one another speak, to sing, to be encouraged and to be built up in mutual solidarity.” Reflects Reverend Peter.
“During 2020, technology in one sense allowed us to gather remotely, yet this will never be an efficient substitute for the actual physical process of coming together as one student body in one place. After over twelve months away from one another, it was indeed a joy to get back to the CGA, so as to both see and hear one another in the flesh!”.
Hume Anglican Grammar would like to wish all families a Happy Easter and a safe, enjoyable holiday break.
Term 2 will commence for all students on Tuesday, 20 April 2021.
