"The Reflection Room fills a much needed gap in finding space and time for spirituality, in school both within the curriculum and beyond it. Students and teachers readily embraced the project which was discreetly staffed by trained Diocesan leaders. Students have requested reflection rooms be annual event. I can endorse the experience for all types of schools whether they be faith or secular schools wholeheartedly."Dave Millne (Deputy Head teacher, Aspatria)

The phrase 'sorry is as sorry does' means that the apology is only as good as the action that follows it. Being sorry is a statement of intent, that I am going to live differently.

This activity encourages pupils to think about things that they want or need to say sorry for, and then to write it onto torn-up cardboard and peg it onto some hanging strings.

There are other prayer activities in our library that focus on the 'sorry' theme. This is the only one where pupils are encouraged to write down the things they are sorry for and display them for others to see. The pupils don't sign them, of course, but even so, the prayers are public. Amazingly, this doesn't seem to deter pupils from writing honest sorry prayers. And once some have been pegged, many others follow.
