Welcome back! It’s the start of a brand new year and there is so much to look forward to.

This week we welcome hundreds of people into our community. What can we do to help them feel like they belong – how can we help each other settling in for a new year?

Wednesday/Thursday

We begin with the Sign of the Cross

If we want to help people feel welcome we need to put the love of God into action. If we want to change the world for ourselves and others then it starts with one random act of kindness at a time. We’ve been chosen and called by God to do something amazing.

Give everybody a piece of paper and ask each person to think of a simple act of kindness you could do for people. Find a jar/box and put all the ideas inside. Then every week take one out and try and do it for someone who needs it in our school.

Lord, help us do random acts of kindness for those in our community. Amen.

Thursday

We begin with the Sign of the Cross

This whole term is about Being Yourself. It’s about celebrating identity and personality. It’s about seeing the glory of God reflected in each individual. It’s about respecting people for who they are and not judging others for being different.

 

This week use the Key Process of “Breaking News” to explore the upcoming Paralympics.

Does being disabled affect how you are viewed by society? Has it changed since London 2012?

Lord, help us to see you in others and ourselves. Amen.

Friday

NEXT STEPSWe begin with the Sign of the Cross

As you know, we are going to use the Scripture from this Sunday’s Gospel to reflect on every Friday. If you are in KS 3/4 You can use your planners to to help you understand the scripture.

This year we want to bring the Word of God to life on a Friday morning to help us reflect and understand scripture a little bit better, so with the help of our school community a different person each week will read our Gospel and share what it means to them. Use your planners to help you discuss and explore the story further.

Luke 14: 28

If one of you is planning to build a tower, you sit down first and figure out what it will cost, to see if you have enough money to finish the job.

What are your plans and your goals for the year ahead? How will you help to build a strong foundation for our community?

Lord, help us to listen to and follow your word. Amen.
