Caritas Just Leadership

Caritas Just Leadership

On Thursday, 19th February, we were given the wonderful opportunity to represent Newman College at the Caritas Just Leadership Day, held at John XXIII College. We were inspired by the presentation of Janeen Murphy from Caritas. The focus of this presentation was food security as the focus of this year’s Project Compassion mission is “Food for Life”.

Since our return we have been motivated to present this message to our school community, including teachers, students and parents. Last Tuesday we talked at the staff weekly morning briefing, asking them to increase their involvement in Pastoral Care Groups and around the school.
We also began our presentations to each year group, starting with the Year 7 cohort which was a great experience for the Year 7s and us. They were very responsive and we have learnt that the Year 7 cohort has the greatest participation in this week’s Caritas Fast.
We invite you to discuss the importance of Caritas with your children and we encourage you to visit the Caritas website to see how you can make a difference.
