At Ravenswood, for many years, we have run a special day for Year 10 girls called 'Wisdom of the Elders'. On this day we invite ladies to come to the school and be hosted by a group of students. Each lady will meet with a group of up to 10 students and over a cup of tea and something to eat, they just share their wisdom, particularly about how they came to faith and how it has resourced and sustained them.
This year the Wisdom of the Elders Day will be held on Tuesday 21st November at Ravenswood School for Girls, Henry Street Gordon.
We run it over three sessions across the whole school day. Each of the sessions is approximately 90 minutes long.
During the session ladies will be paired together to join in conversation with a group of 10 -15 x Yr 10 students.
The approximate timing is :
SESSION 1: 8.30am - 10am (followed by Morning tea break)
SESSION 2: 10.30am - 12pm (followed by lunch)
SESSION 3: 1.45pm - 3.15pm
You are more than welcome to join us for lunch which we will provide.
We are now at the stage of firming up our numbers and would love it if this information could be passed on to members of your congregation.
If anyone is able to assist could they please reply to Catherine Leal email@example.com, indicating:
a)whether you are able to join us
b) your preferred session times/s
c) whether you will join us for lunch
d) if you have any specific needs/requirements
The girls love seeing photos or mementos from your life if you have any small pieces of 'show and tell' to bring in, that would be most welcome.
Blessings, The RE Department – Ravenswood School for Girls
