Easter Celebration @ Marymount Convent School
He Is Risen! Alleluia!
Easter Celebrations at Marymount Convent School
Bunnies, Easter eggs, Chocolates – These were some cute responses we got from our little primary school girls when asked, What comes to mind when we talk about Easter?”
With these cute responses, we commenced our Easter celebrations on the lovely Easter Monday morning.
The staff and students were taken through a short sharing on the timeline of where we were at present and the school’s journey through Lent to Easter.
Lent Tree to ‘Alleluia’ Tree
“The wonderful work you are doing is a tree of love and life”
For the season of Lent, we had taken the quote “The wonderful work you are doing is a tree of love and life” as our inspiration and grew a tree – our Lent Tree, which held all our prayers and sacrifices. This tree grew and bloomed into our Easter ‘Alleluia’ Tree with more brightly coloured leaves growing.

The Easter Story by Drama Club
Following the sharing, our school’s talented Drama Club girls put up an amazing skit on The Story of Easter. Costumes were improvised so intelligently, and the full cast showed how we embrace different cultures and religions, all coming together to add meaning and bring the Resurrection Story alive to the school.
Medley of Easter Songs by Catholic Teachers
Following this with a string of Easter medley led by our Catholic teachers. Easter favourites such as Easter Song, Love Crucified Arose, Jesus Christ is Risen Today were among the medley of songs. The Easter Monday celebrations ended with our school supervisor, Sr Delphine, addressing the school, reiterating the meaning of Easter. We absolutely enjoyed the skit and songs.
