In Week 8 the Year 4 boys visited St Peter’s Anglican Cathedral in North Adelaide as part of the Religious and Values Education Program. The boys were able to experience first-hand the beauty and peaceful atmosphere of the cathedral as they observed the art, architecture, and features of this significant place of worship. Volunteer guides shared their knowledge of the historical background of the cathedral, highlighted details and stories contained in the stained-glass windows, and showed the students various sacred areas including the Sanctuary and the High Altar.
The boys were interested to hear about the direct connections between St Peter’s Cathedral and St Peter’s College and noticed the crossed keys symbol of St Peter. The students displayed their curiosity and interest by asking many questions, and they enjoyed the different learning experiences at each of the six stations within the cathedral.
