Stations of The Cross 2021 - Aleenah

 Stations of The Cross

Stations of the cross is an annual event that usually occurs during Holy Week (Ours was April 1st). It's basically a play performed by the seniors of our school when we reenact the events of Jesus' final journey of love. My role in particular was a narrator job, well sort of. I said prayers that related to problems of others reality. Everybody in the years 7 & 8 had a part they needed to execute. 

Some girls were the women of Jerusalem with their children.

One of my friends acted as Veronica whilst my other peers performed as her friends. This scene was one of my favorites, it was when after Veronica wiped the face of Jesus and his image was transferred onto the towel. This picture is of her showing it off to the people around her.

One of the crucial roles was Mary and her friend, it was another friend of mine who showed their dedication to her character.

The boys were the guards. I thought the costumes fit their roles very well, it was creative I thought.

In the middle was Jesus, Our savior who faced an 
un-just death by Pontius Pilate.

Most of the time I felt confident in my role because it was something I knew I could do and was okay at doing it. This was to be one of the major events that would have occurred this term. It's what made me very ecstatic when everybody was tearing up because it showed how our portrayal was on point. I do hope they felt that too.

Marc Chagall "The Gates of The Cemetery" - Aleenah

Marc Chagall

Marc Chagall is an artist of the many eras in art. He was born Russian and French which is why some of his work is displayed in Paris but most were in Belarus. As I was looking on the internet for his work, I found this piece which I really liked: It’s called “The Gates of The Cemetery." I like it because it reminds me of the cemetery where my grandma lives near to and it’s also where my cousin and his dad (my uncle) are buried. I find his artwork really different, but I like it. I think this art piece is one of my favorites from his collection.
