Young Chaplains

We are a group of twenty Young Chaplains, including two Head and two Deputy Young Chaplains.  We have five teams of four children who all work together to enhance our Catholic Faith.

A Young Chaplain always tries to follow WWJD (What would Jesus Do).  They aim to set a good example to others, and try to be a role model to other children, following in the footsteps of Jesus.

Being a Young Chaplain has a lot of responsibility.  Every day we plan and support lunchtime sessions in our special Emmaus room.  We make sure that the activities that we plan for in the Emmaus room at lunchtime are always fun, exciting and appropriate for all ages.  The activities include flag dancing, painting, cake decorating, and other creative activities which are linked to our learning about our Faith and enable the children to ponder on God’s love for them.

The Young Chaplains, write and perform their own whole School assemblies.  “We enjoy writing our own assemblies because we use our own ideas to create marvellous assemblies to inform the children on how God helps us through life and is with us always” – Head Young Chaplain.

As well as that, we have other duties and privileges such as competing in Bible reading competitions at the Northamptonshire, Music and Performing Arts Trust, the Carol Service at Christchurch and presenting Stations of the Cross in our parish churches.

To become a Young Chaplain you have to write a letter to Mrs Brockway (our School Chaplain) explaining why you would be fit for the job, and how you would contribute to the School Chaplaincy Team.
