JOURNEY THROUGH THE HOLY LAND

Posted on 29th January 2019 | GeneralNews

As part of the Senior School General RE provision, speakers are organised for Year 14 students throughout the year. Recently, the pupils were brought on a virtual tour of the Holy Land by Mr. A. Thomson. 

Mr Thomson, who is also a member of the Board of Governors, has been on a number of extended trips to the Holy Land spanning over three months in total. The pupils joined Mr Thomson as he walked in the steps of Jesus: through Bethlehem, Samaria, Jerusalem, Nazareth, Galilee, and beyond. The talk touched on some of the cultural, religious and political issues that surround the Holy Land today and brought to life the reality of this troubled region; a land divided by conflict.
