One World Council

One World

Our One World Council is comprised of 2 student representatives from each class (from Year 1 upwards). The reps are the spokespeople of the pupils to the school leadership.  We prioritise celebrating and communicating our faith as well as preserving and improving the environment.

INTENT

We aim to live out our faith through promotion of our Catholic ethos and stewardship of our God-given world.  We have a significant role in school life and are passionate about living out Jesus’s command to ‘love one another’, are interested in prayer and want to take an active role in protecting God’s creation for example through recycling challenges and gardening.

We see our purpose as

  • Helping to build a happy community rooted in faith.
  • Helping to support those who are less fortunate than we are.
  • Taking responsibility for our local environment: for what we do to the land and the creatures.
  • Taking responsibility for building a more beautiful world for all to enjoy. 

 

IMPLEMENTATION

We meet at least once every half term with the Headteacher - Mrs Bernto.  Before we see her, we collect ideas from our classmates about things that are going well in school and things we would like to change.  We try to come up with solutions!

At the meeting, we present to Mrs B our thoughts and suggestions and the Council votes on which should be our priority for the term.

 

IMPACT

This year, the One World Council

- organised our Harvestfood collection for Readifood

- led a pupil prayer group

- observed and gave feedback on class liturgies

 

Last year, the One World Council

- gave out anti-bullying leaflets for adults and children.  All parents and carers and all pupils got a copy.

- were available on the playground to support children who didn't have anyone to play with

- led the Harvest Food Collection for Readifood and the Christmas Stocking Collection

 

Developing a Prayer area in our Prayer Garden - Spring 1 (2022)

As part of our resposibilty for looking after God's creations we are going to develop an area in the large Prayer Garden (by the side of the Reception classroom). The One World Council Leaders have asked their classes to come up with ideas for the Prayer Garden. The ideas will be collected by the Leaders and the children will decide on a suitable design for a small mural and prayer area to be developed (with teacher guidance) during the upcoming Spring and Summer Terms. 

*Some images to show the garden currently and the sheet children have been given to collect ideas*
