This week during our religion lesson we spoke about a very important figure for our religion – St. Paul.
The children learnt that we have a feast associated with this Saint and that is why we do not have school on Friday 10 February.
The children got to know that a long long time ago this man ended up on our Maltese shore because of a storm and very rough seas. His boat got smashed against the rocks and so the people living here at the time helped him and gave him shelter.
St. Paul told them great stories about Jesus and all the good things He did. Slowly slowly the people started believing in Jesus. That is how we became Christians.
Story of St. Paul’s Shipwreck.
The children made a boat representing the shipwreck by painting 2 halves of a paper plate and also half a toilet roll for a sail. This is a similar version of how the craft will look like when assembled.
