Pupils learn about Jewish fes­ti­val of Passover

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOLS -

St Mary’s School in Old Amer­sham was paid a visit by Ge­off Has­sell from the South Bucks Jewish Com­mu­nity last week.

He went to the school in Church Street to talk to its year three and four pupils about the fes­ti­val of Pasach – the Passover, which is a fes­ti­val echoed by the Chris­tian fes­ti­val of Easter.

The chil­dren had a chance to wear masks that de­picted the 10 plagues suf­fered and also to try some un­leav­ened bread – Matzo. Dawn Lam­min from the school said: “The chil­dren all learnt lots and en­joyed the ways that Mr Has­sell brought the story of the Passover to life, which is im­por­tant as we soon break up to cel­e­brate this spe­cial fes­ti­val.”
