|New Easter resource on its way|

It has been a relatively quiet blog over the last few months, for which no apologies! With a very heavy workload over the past few months in my usual reflective time of late, late nights, I have only had the energy to vegetate!
One of the pieces of work that has been on the back-burner for much of last year was editing the resource booklet for the chaplaincy team's Easter event that we devised and ran for the first time last Easter for all the associated primary schools to Calderside Academy.
I knew that the past week would be quiet so I blocked the diary out for chaplaincy work to get the booklet finished. [There's more...]It is now just about finished with comments and corrections from the other members of the chaplaincy team. I've passed it to a couple of pairs of 'fresh eyes' to give it the last look before the masters go to the printer.
So if you haven't already placed an order for it, this is the time to do that! Though I say so myself (and on behalf of the rest of the chaplaincy team) we were really pleased with this programme for Primary 7 children, and from our discussions with a local bookstore it is a rare publication - there are plenty of resources relating to Christmas, but precious few looking at Easter.
For us as a team it is good timing to get this all organised as it is forcing us to look again at the programme in good time before we ourselves run "The Easter Code" in a few months time.
Now the booklet is organised I need to think what will be included on the accompanying CD-ROM and edit some of the video footage we have from last year so the disks are ready to roll when the books get back from the printer.
If you are interested, you can order a copy at www.calderside.org.uk.
