Over two days, 150 Year 7 pupils visited and experienced a variety of activities at Sacred Heart in Colne. Both days started with a pilgrimage walk from Fisher More to Sacred Heart, with the pupils armed with clipboards as they looked for clues and symbols on their journey.
Once at Sacred Heart the pupils experienced a number of activities to help them explore their own gifts and talents. These varied from fun, team-building games and activities to quiet, spiritual reflection and prayer writing. There was also a wonderful opportunity to explore Sacred Heart Church and celebrate Mass with Fr Wilkinson. It was an excellent way of introducing the pupils to the key elements of the Catholic Faith.
Pupil feedback has been overwhelmingly positive for this enriching experience which we hope to further develop for next year.
