Welcome to our new pupil chaplains who have been chosen for this very important role within St Joseph’s.
We are the Pupil Chaplains of St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School and we are incredibly proud to represent our school in this privileged role. We get to wear our special chaplain’s jumpers which are a different colour to the rest of the school. This is to distinguish us as having a special role within the school, so people can recognise who we are and what we do.
In order to be selected for this role, we had to apply for the position and then interviewed by the Executive Headteacher Miss Mc Flynn. We meet regularly supporting the Catholic Life of the school in a range of ways and to discuss and share our ideas.
Our school has its own Chapel, which we are very proud of. It is such a special place that we take our shoes off to enter, as a mark of respect. We take it in turns to be in the school’s Chapel during lunch times, where we are there to talk to pupils who pop in to prayer during their break. We also focus on enhancing the religious knowledge of younger children within the school and spread the Word of the Lord. We take part in Collective Worship across the school marking specific days throughout the Liturgical Year.
As Ambassadors for our school, we have accompanied prospective parents on tours around our beautiful school.
We have lots of ideas on how to live out our faith, and actively show this to the whole school community. Throughout the year we aim to support our community, focusing on local, national and international charities, through fundraising and campaigning activities. We aspire to follow in Jesus’ footsteps through our role as servant leaders.
