"Visiting Parc Eglos school was a privilege in itself so it was a very pleasant surprise to observe a group of pupils actively engaged in learning about prayer and faith. Schools are busy places and do not always lend themselves to times of quiet. The Prayer Space is clearly a place where children can take time to learn about themselves, each other and the role faith plays in modern life."Derek Thomas, MP for St Ives (Cornwall)

"This has helped me to be me, and not something that's not me." Year 10 student. 

In some situations, and with some people, we are not really ourselves. At school, with certain groups of friends, on social media, maybe even at home. We behave and talk and present ourselves differently because we want to fit in, we want to belong or be liked. It's a bit like wearing a series of masks, and it's hard work. 

This activity encourages students to think about the masks that they wear, and about the real person underneath the masks.
