The labyrinth

The labyrinth of Life

The labyrinth in the middle of the schoolyard is a replica of the well-known labyrinth in Chartres
Cathedral, France. It measures 12.85 metres in dia-meter, and the walk to the centre is 261 metres long. The labyrinth is from the 13th century and symbolises the individual’s intricate path through life – you never know what is waiting for you around the corner! However, the seeker who sticks closely to the path comes closer to both himself/herself and to God. The labyrinth is still used in Chartres today. Every
Friday, the church pews are moved to the side after which the residents of Chartres are able to walk through the labyrinth – in thought, meditation or prayer.
