A Stewardship Faith Morning was held in school on Tuesday 11 December for all students in Year 7 and 8.
The drop down session was arranged following discussions within the Global Warriors group who wanted to come up with an activity day where students could learn about a chosen theme, in this case ‘stewardship’. Guest speakers from charities and organisations who embody stewardship were invited into school to speak to the students.
The aim of the sessions was to enforce the idea of global stewardship, responsibility and God’s protection in order to be more aware of how everyone can make a difference to the planet. Stewardship in other faiths was also looked at and the work of the Global Warriors group was showcased.
After listening to the guest speakers, students attended a workshop organised by the Global Warriors group to promote helping to save the environment. This was done via a poster making activity where the students were given information about different perspectives on stewardship, information on different countries, ethnicities, specific people or charities.
At the end of the day, there was opportunity for the Global Warriors to meet with the guest speakers to discuss their work.
As always, a very inspiring day @StMarysMenston! Amazing to see a school and it’s students so aware of world issues and taking positive action to help! See you again soon! 💚💜💛🌍🙏#CAFOD #Leeds #ClimateChange #NoOneBeyondReach #CharityTuesday pic.twitter.com/Kaugo84pEi— CAFOD In Leeds (@CAFODLeeds) December 11, 2018
