"Our school motto is 'Let Your Light Shine' and we strongly believe that prayer spaces enable our children to do just that. We never cease to be moved by the empathy and deep thought that our children show - sharing their hearts, wondering about the world around them and reaching out to others in their words and prayers." Deputy Head Teacher (Guildford Diocese)

Everyone has hopes and dreams - things they would like to have, or to be, things they would like to do, or places they would like to go. Some hopes and dreams are small and could happen today. Others are huge and may take a whole lifetime to reach. Some hopes and dreams feel impossible.

This activity encourages students to think about their hopes and dreams. It involves writing down three hopes and dreams; the first for a small hope or dream, something that could happen today. The second for a bigger hope or dream, something that is possible, but might take a long time to reach. The third for a huge hope or dream, something that feels impossible.

“Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” Helen Keller

“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.” Martin Luther King, Jr
