Our School Prayer is at the heart of our school and seen on a daily basis as students enter the main school foyer. Students and staff regularly pray the school prayer together.
Who am I God?
Why am I here?
What do you want me to do?
You made me special
to do something wonderful
in this life of mine.
Show me what I might be,
what I might do,
who I might help
And I’ll do it for you.
|We want God's love to be at the heart of our school community. We focus on the Gospel values and live these out throughout our day so we can share the word of God to all who we encounter. We are asked to make disciples of all nations and by living out the gospel values, this is one small way we can do this whilst keeping our faith at the centre.|
Each department also have prayers where they start or finish their classes with their department prayer.
