"It is as if the space has tapped into a vein of spirituality in our pupils that none of us, themselves included, knew they had. Even pupils who exhibit challenging behaviour in some lessons have been calm as soon as they walk into the space. Pupils who were already Christian seem relieved that their classmates now understand how faith helps them through their daily lives."Head of RE, Pakefield High School (Suffolk)

We meet lots of people. Some people we grow to know really well, like our parents, family and friends. Others we meet for a brief moment, at a bus stop or in a shop, or even in the street. This activity encourages students to spend time thinking about a couple of people that they know. Maybe someone that they know who needs help, or someone that they find it hard to get on with, or maybe someone that they want to say thank you for?

The students are invited to draw a picture of each person and write a prayer on the back, and then add it onto a big 'people tree'.
