YEAR 5 CHAPLAINCY CELEBRATION DAY

|

This week our Year 5 Chaplaincy Team joined other Chaplaincy and GIFT (Growing in faith together) Teams for a day of celebration at Blessed Trinity. Our theme was 'Called to be Missionary Disciples'.  It was a fantastic opportunity to meet with other teams and share all the good work we are doing in our schools. We had morning prayer together, played some ice breaker games, presented our chaplaincy work to each other and worked in mixed groups to share ideas about how we can be missionary disciples in this special Year of Mercy. We enjoyed lunch together and prepared for our Mass.  We were very lucky to have Bishop John celebrate Mass for us. He commissioned Chaplaincy and GIFT Team members.  We presented him with special keys with the chaplains' names on. We used this symbol because Pope Francis has opened the Holy Door in Rome.  We all took part in the Mass and every school was presented with a special candle blessed by the Bishop.  We will light this candle in all our assemblies.  We had an amazing day and came back to school with new ideas.     

Writer of the Month

At the end of the month of January, we chose our children for the 'Writer of the Month' award. Two children from each class were chosen for their super efforts in writing.  Who will be chosen for the month of February? Keep working hard and it could be you!
