Faith in Action

Year 6 - Pin Award

This year, our Year 6 children have been organising a range of activities with the school and wider community to practise putting their Faith into Action thus working towards achieving their Pin Award.

The award is at a preliminary PIN - Discovery level.  Throughout the year, the children have been discovering what it means for their faith to be active.  They have come to know more about how their faith and relationship with God and how this has an outward and visible effect on them and those around them.  Examples of service the Year 6's have participated in has included included fundraising, engaging in reflection points across the year, taking an active role in Liturgy (eg preparing class liturgies, reading, or serving at Mass), as well as creating prayer cards for those in need. Here are some of the Year 6's highlights:

Autumn: Welcome Breakfast

To launch this award, Year 6 hosted a breakfast morning at the beginning of the year. The children invited all families across school to come in with their children and enjoy breakfast together. All donations raised went towards The People's Kitchen.
