Candlelight and incense softened the atmosphere in the library at Waddesdon CofE School in Buckinghamshire, as School Chaplain, the Revd Janet Bayly, set up Prayer Stations including a globe, to focus on those suffering from hardship around the world, a map of the local area and glass pebbles for students to give to their loved ones. Amy Hayes, Librarian, said: "Despite the fact that many of the students come into the library every day during their breaks, it was wonderful to see them taking part in such an experience.

It was lovely to see them taking time out to reflect on their day-to-day life.

The library was completely transformed and was lit only by candles to create a tranquil and hassle-free space for everyone to pray or meditate in.

The Prayer Stations generate a little island of solace in the midst of a busy day, or even term for that matter. " Photos: Waddesdon CE School.
