“the sense making activity that both children and adults necessarily carry out as a result of the life experiences they encounter” Clive Erricker
“delighting in all things, being absorbed in the present moment, not too attached to ‘self’ and eager to explore boundaries of ‘beyond’ and other, searching for meaning, discovering purpose, open to more’ Rabbi Hugo Gryn
At Howick we believe that spirituality is something that touches us all. It is a connection to something that is bigger than ourselves. It is about awe and wonder, asking ultimate questions and being inspired to look beyond ourselves and serve and care for others and nature.
Our pupils’ spiritual development is shown by their:
• Beliefs, religious or otherwise, which inform their perspective on life and their interest in and respect for different people’s feeling and values
• Sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world around them, including the intangible
• Use of imagination and creativity in their learning
• Willingness to reflect on their experiences.
