From Pharaoh to Freedom

25 and 26 March 2013

The children in Lower Key Stage 2 performed their Easter Production 'From Pharaoh to Freedom' on the evening of 25th March to a 'full house' and again on the afternoon of the 26th to parents and visitors of the school.

'From Pharaoh to Freedom' tells the special story of the Passover. There are three stories told throughout the play. The origins of the Passover in Israel and how the Israelites were led by Moses to freedom; Jesus celebrating the Passover (Last Supper) then dying for us on the cross and a current day Jewish family celebrating Passover.

The play explains the meaning behind the traditions involved in the Passover such as the different foods on the Seder Plate and why Israel and freedom are so important to Jewish people.

The play shows the struggles that the Israelites had to go through and how their faith brought them through highlighting how God will always look after us.

The children all acted and sang beautifully, some memorable songs being, 'Let my people go' and 'Man of Sorrows'. They all worked very hard and made the production a great success that was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
