Pupil Chaplaincy Team
As part of their role, the members of the Pupil Chaplaincy Team – children from Y3 to Y6 - support pupils across the whole school in developing and deepening their faith. Nurtured by the Parish Team and the Head Teacher who support the Pupil Chaplaincy Team in their understanding of the Gospel, the children are enthusiastic followers in the footsteps of Jesus. On a weekly basis, the chaplaincy team lead whole school Gospel assemblies, reading and sharing Bible stories with pupils and engaging the whole school community in activities to enhance their understanding of God and their own faith.
Throughout the liturgical year, the Pupil Chaplaincy Team lead whole school acts of worship such as Praying the Rosary in October or The Stations of the Cross in Lent. On a half termly basis, the chaplaincy team support and lead a collective worship in the classroom and, throughout the year, the Pupil Chaplaincy team lead whole school Common Good initiatives organising our annual food collection for a local food bank at Harvest Time or launching our Winter Coat Drive for the homeless. Other projects include collecting pet food for a local animal shelter or a dress up day to support victims of the earthquake in Turkey last year.
