"The good provision for pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is seen within the wide range of experiences offered. During the inspection, pupils were observed taking up the opportunities offered by the prayer room, run by members of the local church. There is a great deal of evidence of the wide range of cultural experiences enjoyed by all pupils."OFSTED Inspector (Oxfordshire)

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 students 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 students are encouraged to write down the things they are sorry for and display them for others to see. The students don't sign them, of course, but even so, the prayers are public. Amazingly, this doesn't seem to deter students from writing honest sorry prayers. And once some have been pegged, many others follow.
