“We are very pleased with the prayer space in our school. It worked out real depth, and shows who we are as a school. We’re always looking for opportunities to help the students to think about the meaning of life and the prayer space helps to form their identity. It’s an important consideration that I make everyday as manager: What suits this school at this time? The prayer space fits well within the task we have in the areas of socialization, personal development and civic education of our students. The prayer space was way more than just a quiet room. Often you see that those spaces are empty and not in use. But this time it was really alive."Bas Bastiaanse, School Director (Netherlands)

This activity invites pupils to reflect on world issues - wars, conflicts, etc. It can also be used to help pupils reflect on how they feel following a tragic event, and it gives them an opportunity to express these feelings. 

Pupils are invited to look at images from around the world (e.g. wars, conflicts, natural disaster) or of a recent event (e.g. fire, terrorist attack), or to think about other situations that they are aware of. Pupils are encouraged to think about how they feel, what they think and who needs peace in this situation. With the hope that thinking about the event will help them process their thoughts and feelings in a safe environment.
