Catholic Social Teaching

Catholic Social Teaching is ‘an aspect of the life and the thinking of the Catholic Church.’ It concerns what the Church has to say about social issues and the way in which Catholic faith should be lived out within society. These teachings are rooted in Scripture and especially in the teachings of Jesus found in the Gospels.

Wear, Care, Share

We would like to say a huge thank you to all the families and staff who have donated unwanted clothes and shoes for our latest appeal. The school wanted to be a part of this initiative as we wanted to put our faith into action by doing all we can to recycle and look after God’s planet. The Good Samaritans have worked hard to drive this message throughout the school. Our donations have finally been taken and weighed and all our donations weighed in at 200kg. We will keep you updated with how this is transferred into Cash for Kids and where this money will be helping young children.

The 200kg equates to £80 going to Cash for kids which will support helping vulnerable children in our local area.

Thank you very much

Food Bank Ambassadors 

Members of the Good Samaritan group, school council and Eco Committee have had the privilege to visit the Food bank distribution warehouse in Blurton. The children got to see where and what happens to their donations. The children worked with volunteers to date and sort items and then visit St. Albans Church Centre where the food is distributed to the general public. By working in Solidarity we can ensure the needs of the poor and vulnerable are put first in our community. 

The whole school have been working hard using Cop26 as inspiration to demonstrate how we can act and be Stewards of God’s creation. We have created a whole school display showing how working in solidarity can have a positive impact on God’s world and the most poorest and vulnerable.

We have been further inspired in our journey for caring for our common home with the help of Rise theatre. The production was called “God’s Planet” This interactive workshop explored God’s planet, the impacts of a changing world and what our children can do to help look after the planet in their own lives. The children had a full day of inspiring performances, singing, dancing and practical activities closing the day with a interactive final performance. Please look at the photos below:
