“See You at the Pole”

“See You at the Pole” (SYATP) is an annual event that takes place at many schools around the world, usually in September. The event is student-initiated and student-led, and its primary focus is on prayer. The central element of SYATP is a gathering of students at the school’s flagpole, where they come together to pray for their school, community, nation, and the world.

“See You at the Pole” began in 1990 in the United States as a grassroots movement, and it has since spread to other countries. The name “See You at the Pole” is derived from the idea that students meet at the flagpole located near the main entrance of their school before classes begin.

The event typically involves a time of prayer and sometimes includes scripture readings, worship, and other expressions of faith. It is intended to provide an opportunity for students to come together in a visible and public way to express their faith, seek God’s guidance, and pray for various concerns. Participation is voluntary, and students from various religious backgrounds may choose to take part.

“See You at the Pole” has grown over the years, and many schools have embraced it as a positive expression of student-led faith-based initiatives. However, it’s important to note that the level of involvement and the specific activities may vary from school to school, and participation is generally subject to local school policies and regulations.
