During our Mission week we were fortunate to have staff from Castlerigg the Catholic retreat centre in Keswick join us for a day of reflection on ‘Living life to the Full’. A team of young people led by Sister Shienrose Agnes La Torre worked throughout the day with our Year 8 pupils. They led different activities such as ice breakers, games and reflections.
The pupils were then asked to reflect on their own gifts and talents and create their own light house that would show some of their talents. The idea was to ‘let their talents shine’. The aim of the day was to encourage the students to see themselves as important and all having GIFTs and talents which they should share to help others.
