The Blessing of the Snow Chapel, run each year at Snowy Mountains Grammar School, was hosted this year by Year 5/6. As a class, they arranged the Chapel service to be inclusive of all attending students and staff.
On entering the Chapel, all students were given a pre-made snowflake that was made by Year 5/6. On the snowflake, they were asked to write their hopes for our winter season. These were then placed on a mural that was waiting, with a snowman and snow on the floor. As a school community, we made a snow flurry with all our hopes for the upcoming winter. Students from across the Junior School presented information about snow and ice festivals that are run around the world. We then introduced Elsa from ‘Frozen’. However, this Elsa was less about being courageous and more about being someone who doesn’t like the cold. We talked of courage, determination, teamwork, appreciation for what we have around us and then revisited Elsa as a flash mob song led by our Junior School choir! It wasn’t long before the whole school was singing ‘Let it Go’ at the top of their voices to end our feel-good chapel.
Mr Scott Frize, Head of Junior School, said that running the special Chapel service was a privilege for the students of Year 5/6 and was a wonderful opportunity for them to experience leadership. It was a memorable way to officially celebrate the start of a busy but magical time of year for everyone in the Snowies.
