During our half term based on our value of 'Thankfulness', we spent some time thinking about the things we are thankful for in our lives. Worship Council asked children across school to write prayers of thanks to hang in a prayer tree.
The prayer flag tradition has a long history dating back to ancient Tibet, China, Persia and India and the tradition is gaining popularity in other parts of the World. The meanings behind prayer flags are based on the Tibetan Buddhist philosophy. Buddhists believe that the prayers, mantras and powerful symbols displayed on the flags and in the prayer trees are picked up by the wind and carried across the countryside. All beings that are touched by the wind are uplifted and a little happier.
