GIFT Team

In September 2017, we launched a new school initiative called the GIFT Team.  GIFT stands for Growing In Faith Together.  Each year, children  are invited to write a letter to Mrs Cahill if they are interested in joining the team.  One child from each class (Year 1 to Year 6) is chosen to represent their class and help our community grow closer to Jesus.

GIFT Team 2018-19

Meet the new GIFT Team for 2018-19. They will be deciding on a school-wide RE competition which will run during the season of Advent so watch this space for details! 

Here are some of the highlights from 2017-18.

In the Autumn term, the GIFT Team ran a school-wide competition.  They invited pupils to design a picture to go on their class prayer box.  The team chose the winners who then had their design copied onto their class prayer box and the other entries were displayed in the school entrance. 
After Christmas, the GIFT Team did some work for a charity called Women in Prisons. They collected old Christmas cards from school families who donated them and cut out the pictures on the front covers. These pictures were then sent to the charity who pass them on to women in prison so they can make cards for their families and friends. 
The GIFT Team promoted a 'wear red' day on St Agatha's feast day and collected money for a charity called Aid to the Church in Need. At Mass that day, it looked like a sea of red filling the church. Over £300 was raised and gratefully received by this worthy charity. 
During Lent, the GIFT Team got together and designed a Holy Week display for the RE board in the school hall. This was followed by the Year 6 children leading the children in a Stations of the Cross service which was both meditative and moving. 
At the end of the school year, the GIFT Team organised a tea party for staff and our parish priest, Father Anthony. It was a beautiful sunny day so they had to eat the chocolate cake very quickly before it melted! The tea party ended with the children sharing their own prayers in our prayer garden.
