A vocation is our calling from God. Fr John felt God’s calling to be a priest.
In their recent topic Y6 studied ‘Vocation and Commitment’ and explored the sacrament of Ordination.
What do you think your calling from God is?
How will you be committed to that role?
Our pupils live out their vocations in ways which include:
· Prayer Monitors
· Y5 Retreat
· Collective Worship leaders
· Classroom monitors
· Y6 House captains, Vice captains, clerk, Sport captains
· Anti-Bullying ambassadors
· Health and Safety Junior Committee
· Digital Leaders
· Play Leaders
· Buddies for younger pupils during Collective Worship and throughout the school day
We are very proud of the roles and responsibilities that our pupils lead the school, We are one family- our children look after each other just like Jesus looks after each member of His family.
School ‘Buddies’ in Action
St. Patrick’s School ‘Buddies’ help, support and guide the younger members of St. Patrick’s School Community.
‘Minnie Vinnies’ support school and community projects. They are currently leading ‘well being warriors’ at lunchtimes, supporting groups of children in developing their relationship with God through prayer.
At St. Patrick’s Primary School we believe all children should be given a sense of belonging within our school community through encouragement to be positive role models and part of a supportive team.
The House system creates friendly competition, promotes good work and behaviour, encourages teamwork, provides opportunities to take on responsibilities and brings everyone in the school together.
Every child who attends our school is assigned to one of four ‘houses’. Each house is made up of pupils of different ages from Year 1 through to the Year 6.
There are four houses at St. Patrick’s, which are each led by children elected from Year 6.
Our school council has worked very hard as part of the Maun Valley Citizenship Group. This dedicated group of local schools, churches and other organisations came together to campaign for safer roads around school and to support the local community ‘Loneliness’ campaign.
