Faith Council

Faith Council is lead by Mrs Molloy. They are currently leading worship throughout the terms and they are beginning to develop our understanding of Global Citizenship by looking at a range of ways to raise awareness and support for issues around the world and our own community.

The Faith Council consists of children from Year 6 who assist Miss Brady, Mr Lloyd and Mrs Molloy in all faith matters in the school, including whole school worships, celebration assemblies and services in church. In a church service of each year, members of the Faith Council are inducted at a special service in which they make their Faith Council promise which is:

Faith Council Shoe Box Appeal

It has been brought to our attention that local groups and charities have organised a ‘shoebox appeal’ to support refugees displaced due to the conflict in Ukraine. Over the next few weeks, these shoeboxes will be delivered just off the Ukraine border.

For any member of the St James’ community wishing to support this appeal, please bring shoe boxes or items from the list above in on the mornings of Thursday 24th March and Thursday 31st March. In return for these kind donations, school will provide children with ice pops to say thank you. Our Ethos Group and Staff will hopefully be able to create a number of shoe boxes with kind donations and arrange to drop them at the local depot ready for shipment.
