Sunday School Advent Programme Certificate Presentation

ssadvent5

Complete 26 requisite activities during the season of Advent in preparation for Christmas. This challenge was issued by St Ignatius Church (SIC) Sunday School to some 150 of its primary students who were not able to gather as usual in their classrooms due to Covid-19 pandemic restrictions. Why 26? Because there are 26 days in Advent and there is an activity for each day in the season.

On 11 November 2020 when the Advent Programme was launched, parents were granted online access to register their children, use a guidebook explaining the reason behind each activity listed in the Advent Calendar, & follow instructions on how to upload pictures of completed activities. Virtual Christmas trees were decorated with symbols (each child was assigned a symbol) as activities are completed.

“Advent is a time of hope, joy, anticipation, reflection, forgiveness & thanksgiving; a time of self-preparation to receive baby Jesus,” shared Catechism Class Support Team member Lelia Chan. “We hope the children who participated in the Advent Programme have gained this deeper understanding of Advent; making their Christmas a more meaningful one.”

On Saturday 2 January 2021, four students who completed all 26 tasks – Jayden Jayatilaka, Zachary Lau Xue Rui, Allena Mitzie D Valiente & Tristan Jace Edward – were each presented with a Certificate of Achievement by SIC Parish Priest Fr Andrew Wong CDD. According to two of the recipients, designing ornaments for the activities & abstaining from regular use of smartphones or electronic devices are amongst the most difficult to achieve. Also present to share their achievement were the students’ parents & a few siblings.
