Schools make the most virtual Pilgrim Day

In a period when they would normally be attending our Pilgrim Days in person, children across the diocese have instead been marking the milestone of moving on from their primary school into secondary education slightly differently.

Instead of a service and activities in the Cathedral, schools have been downloaded Pilgrim resources and carrying out their activities in class and at home with great success.

Helen Garrett, Pilgrim Days organiser says, “Pilgrim Days are always so valued that we felt we had to organise something special to help the children mark this milestone, but especially in these challenging times. Some of our usual contributors to Pilgrim Days, such as Oddments Theatre, helped us put together a fun and inspiring package of activities and we have received some wonderful feedback from schools and they have shared many examples of the children’s work which has been great to see.”

For more resources and ideas to support children at this time, visit the Schools, Children and Young People page on the Coronavirus support area of the website.
