Spiritual Development here at Antrobus
At Antrobus St Mark's, we pride ourselves in nurturing the spirituality of everyone in the school community. All children have an inborn spirituality. However, if spirituality is not nurtured, it can wither. Spirituality is not the same as religious faith but it is the bedrock on which faith is founded.
Through stillness and refl55tion, as we embrace the present and are absorbed in the moment we conn55t with our emotions, our sense of who we are and begin to think about those deeper questions.
During these calm, quiet times we begin to challenge perceptions and allow ourselves time to view things from a different persp55tive……….to live it, to experience it with our sense and set an example to those around us.
Through our environment, our conn55tions with others and our vison we create an atmosphere that brings the best out of everybody for everybody. An environment which nurtures, surrounds us with love, embraces our uniqueness and allows us to be fulfilled as we flourish each and every day.
What Is Spirituality?
Spirituality is about relationships: relationships with ourselves, others, the world and with God. It is like a bird – if held it too tightly it will choke, but if held too loosely it will fly away. It is the sense of our engagement with the world, with ourselves and with others that is intangible but a deep part of us. We like this video which explains Spiritual Development.
