What does being part of The Chaplaincy Team involve?

  • Be a joyful witness of Christ in our school in the way they speak and act and treat others.
  • Work with the Lead chaplain (Mrs Melia-Redgrave), and Mrs Cahill to make a plan of what we want to do.
  • Support the staff and children in their work.
  • Plan events to help the children understand special times of the year e.g. Advent, Easter.
  • Support the children who are on the Sacramental Programme (making their first Holy Communion).
  • Plan ways to use our Chapel.
  • Work with classes to plan prayers, assemblies and liturgies.
  • Help our school to make links with the parish of St Mark’s and attend Masses at St Mark’s Church at times.
  • Attend meetings to welcome parents e.g. Parents’ Evening.
  • Lead fundraising in school.
