Unique and Valuable - Full School Primary Retreat

  • An Afternoon Retreat

    All the work has been done for you by OneLife Music, meaning there is very little for the lead teacher to do! The first chapter on the platform will provide you with a Planner, Attachments and Teachers Notes and the rest is led for you on the platform. Everything has been thoughtfully structured to allow the children a time to pray, sing, share and enjoy activities and because it is pre-recorded, you can make your purchase and hold the retreat on an afternoon that is best for everyone.

  • Enjoy the Retreat as a whole school

    Due to changing circumstances and guidelines in schools, this retreat has been designed to be run as a whole school experience. Either by streaming to each classroom or by coming together in your school hall in, take comfort in the knowledge that everyone is on retreat at the same time.

  • Unique and Valuable

    In God's eyes we are all unique and valuable. Each and everyone of us has been created, as a potter would mould the clay. This retreat, through its music, sharing and activities, reminds us just how unique and valuable we are. Beginning with prayer and song led by OneLife, the retreat leads on to sharing and setting of the scene, before Dan and Emily invite the children to explore the message further using their classroom activities. We come back together a number of times during the retreat, before bringing our time to close with a very special time of prayer in the closing liturgy.

We are God's Masterpiece

| Psalm 139:13-14 |

You made my whole being. You formed me in my mother’s body. I praise you because you made me in an amazing and wonderful way. What you have done is wonderful. I know this very well.
