End of Chaplaincy
The 2017-2018 Pupil Chaplains enjoying some treats on their last day at St. Georges. We would like to express our gratitude to these 10 pupils who worked hard in their roles on the school chaplaincy team. We would also like to wish all the Year 6 pupils the very best of luck in secondary school. We look forward to our new chaplaincy team starting soon. Watch this space…
Leavers Mass Prayer
On Monday 16th July, the Year 6 pupils at St.George's attended their Leavers' Mass at our parish church. At the beginning of the Mass, the Pupil Chaplains presented their prayer poles on the altar as a sign of their collegiality and bonds of spiritual friendship, to keep in touch with each other and with God. On each pole was a prayer and special message for the school Pupil Chaplains next year.
Mini Volunteering Experience
On Friday 29th June,the Pupil Chaplains, accompanied by Mrs Reilly, visited Sudbury Neighbourhood Centre and joined in with their weekly singing. The children really enjoyed signing alongside and for the elderly and spent time catching up with them after the sing song.
On their third visit to Sudbury Neighbourhood Centre in February 2018, some of our Pupil Chaplains performed both music and dance to entertain the elderly. It was a day of smiles and laughter for all.
On Friday 13th October, our newly appointed Pupil Chaplains, accompanied by Mrs Reilly, visited the local Sudbury Neighbourhood Centre for a mini volunteering experience.
This was the first of many visits that will take place this year. The children were keen to get involved and introduce themselves to everyone, sharing stories and laughs together. One of the pupils even volunteered to share her love of music with the elderly and played some beautiful pieces on the piano.
On Wednesday 27th June 2018, the Pupil Chaplains, accompanied by Miss Ahern, visited Our Lady of the Holy Souls church to celebrate 175 years of Mission Together.
Mission Together is one the charities that we support and the pupils at St George's really enjoy supporting other children. Mission Together is the children's branch of Missio, the Holy Father's official charity for overseas mission.
After the service, the Chaplains had their photograph taken with the parish priest at Our Lady of the Holy Souls, Father Philip Baptiste, who is an ex pupil at St George's, and Bishop John Wilson.
