Our school day has a liturgical aspect to it, with redirection towards worship throughout the hours:

-We start every morning in the chapel with sung Morning Prayer (Anglican 1928 BCP)
-The whole school community meets in the church courtyard and sings our lunch hymn together (in parts) before lunch
-After lunch the whole school community meets in the chapel for fifteen minutes of contemplation, sometimes accompanied by Divine Reading
-Our days end with choir practice in the chapel, where our students sing beautiful hymns selected from our Anglican heritage and leave to go home with those words and tunes ringing in their minds

During the year we regularly celebrate feast days; during Lent we do Stations of the Cross in the chapel on Fridays and do a Lenten cross challenge.

Love this! School academics and social interactions can sometimes be hard or discouraging - not even something anyone else perceives. But God. To have God at the beginning, middle, and end - what a great reminder he is FOR us.
