Here you will find all of the latest news and updates from the Chaplaincy Teams throughout the school. 

There have been several whole school events involving the Chaplaincy Team this Term. Together as a community we celebrated the feast day of Blessed John Henry Newman with a wonderful Mass. We paid specific attention to the impact climate change is having on our world and expressed our promises to make a difference on beautiful hearts made from recycled paper. We thought about our wider community and how our actions every day have consequences on a world wide scale.  We made promises to be aware of our actions and prayed for those affected across the world.

November provided an opportunity to stop and reflect on Remembrance Day, as we drew together as a community to offer our thoughts and prayers for those who had lost their lives serving in wars and conflicts across the globe.  Working in collaboration with the History Department and members of our community who are currently involved in active Cadet service, we remembered past pupils of St Angela’s and St Michael’s schools who paid the greatest sacrifice they could to secure our freedom today. 

Our wonderful Year 7s teamed up with Year 12 running partners to take part in our KiSS Fun Run raising money to support the KiSS Community in Uganda.  This was one of our first fundraising events on our school calendar to kick start this year’s support for the community we cherish.  Huge well done to all runners and walkers who completed the course- you did a wonderful job.

As December approaches, our C-Team have launched the 2016 Hamper Appeal. We are working with local charities and families who find themselves in financial crisis during the holiday period to help them have an enjoyable Christmas. As form groups we are collecting all kinds of goodies to donate to those in need across Hertfordshire. Additionally we are collecting shoeboxes full of Christmas goodies to be distributed to elderly members of our parish communities who will spend Christmas alone.   As a school, we are looking forward to wearing our Christmas jumpers with pride as we continue our drive to support local charities raising funds for Herts Young Homeless.

Our Year 10 C-Team are taking part in a Christingle Service at the Lister Hospital Children’s Ward helping the patients and their families celebrate during this festive period.

Additionally we have a team of hard working sixth formers who are helping put together 2017’s Holocaust memorial day, being hosted by The John Henry Newman School. They have worked hard to understand events in greater depth and are putting together a wonderful celebration to reflect on this.
