Statements to Live by
Each week in school we have a ‘statement to live by’. These statements help the children and us as adults too, to think about who we are, what we believe and what we hope to become. We hope that together we will nurture a sense of what it is to be fully human and alive as children and adults sharing in this Christian Catholic community. There are 36 statements in all which are linked to our Religious Education programme ‘Come and See’ and the Catholic life of the school but each one is relevant no matter what our religious beliefs are. Each statement will be introduced on Wednesday and supported by activities in school and each statement will be celebrated in prayer during a liturgy each week. The statements will be displayed in each class, on our newsletters, on our school website and around the school. The statement will also be sent out to parents on Parent Hub. Sometimes, we will suggest a simple activity which you might carry out with your child to support their understanding of the statement.
I Try to be Fair and Just
Our statement to live by this week focus' on fairness. During our liturgy we listened to Psalm 146 which is about God wanting to be fair and just . Together we all thought about how we can live fairly and justly at school today.
