Eating as Jesus did

May 2014


Aaron O’Neill

St Patrick’s school Napier has just finished a school-wide study about the life and times of Jesus.

We thought it would be a great way to finish off our study by sharing a meal together using food likely to have been available 2000 years ago. All 320 Year 0 to 8 students were given the choice of eating:

  • Flat bread
  • Sliced meat
  • Simple salad
  • Apples
  • A selection of dried fruits (dates, raisins and apricots)

Events like this are part of what makes our school a special place.
