The ‘Ethos Team’ are a group of Year 5 and 6 pupils who meet once a week and work together to promote the Catholic Life of the school. We have a responsible girl and boy from Year 6 who are the leaders of the Team. The meetings are varied in content but there is always time to pray together for themselves and their families, for the school and for the needs of those in the world. We often make time for a short reflection whilst listening to a favourite or a new worship song.
The Ethos Team are actively involved in such activities as attending the Diocesan Mass; praying and singing together; leading school assemblies; taking prayers to the classes for the Liturgical seasons; singing and reading at the Cathedral during Trust events; studying and taking up challenges from the weekly gospel; planning activities for younger students to be involved with such as Bible stories; writing prayers and performing drama from the gospel to share with the classes.
