The gift of knowledge is another gift we are blessed with from the Holy Spirit. It might sound very simple but you’ll often hear people say “knowledge is power”. When you take the time to learn about the world around you, you can start to see just what God has created for us. When you learn something new you grow as a person. Think this week about how much you learn at school and what you can learn this week. Take the time to ask a question or read a book and improve your knowledge this week.
Please watch the pride and diversity assembly below during one form time this week! A massive thank you to the 6th form team for educating us all and furthering our knowledge to help us be an inclusive and welcoming community.
On Friday 24th June, year 8 have their retreat day:
This means that year 8 will be off timetable from P1 to P5.
Students will have normal form time in their form rooms in the morning.
After form time, students need to come down to the hall where they will sit in their form group blocks.
Students need to come to school in their normal school uniform, bring their usual equipment and conduct cards, however they do not need to bring their books for Friday lessons (unless their teachers have stated otherwise).
They don’t need to worry about the different activities they will be taking part in throughout the day, they will be leaded, guided and supported through these by staff on Friday.
Task for tutor groups to complete during Tuesday/Wednesday tutor time:
On Friday, as part of the Y8 retreat day, we have some guest speakers kindly visiting our school to share with you:
some of their experiences of the vocations they are living out
What their inspiration was to live out their chosen vocation
How they feel called to live out their chosen vocation
We would like each form group to submit one question for each of the volunteer speakers. We only have an hour so not all questions will be asked but we will try our best to get through as many as possible!
