The Corpus Christi Chaplaincy meeting
On the 15th November 2016, Mary and Grace [of the chaplaincy team] went on a trip to Corpus Christi Roman Catholic Primary school. When they went there, with Mrs Simmons and Mrs Mayhew, they learnt what other schools do under the headings of: ‘What do you understand by Mass and Liturgy?’, ‘How Do Chaplains See their role?’ and ‘What could Chaplains do to improve their role?’
We mixed up with other schools and discussed the questions that we were asked. Each one of us had amazing ideas and wrote down ideas to bring back to be able to do these at our schools. One of our ideas was that we could have a mufti-day for every class for them to learn about their class saint. Also they wouldn’t have any lessons such as Maths or English.
When we got back to school, we sat down and discussed the ideas and how we could build on them. The following Thursday, we discussed with the other chaplains what we did. We all knew that we could make the ideas into reality if we worked together as The Cecilia’s Catholic Primary School’s Chaplains. Meanwhile, on the next we discussed what had been said at The Corpus Christi Chaplaincy meeting. We came up with loads of ideas that link to the real meaning of Christmas.
