As a school we have a lot to be proud of. We have awesome young people, amazing staff and lots of opportunities to make the most of during our time at The Becket. All these things are gifts from God and all these things need to be shared with the world around us. This week’s ‘Word of the Week’ is: Proud, and it’s not about showing off, but about recognising that God can do amazing things in our lives and sharing that with others. St Irenaeus said the “The Glory of God is a human being fully alive” and when we are happy and successful we show that glory to others.

What have you got to be proud about? Everyone is school is capable of amazing things and we should recognise them in others and in ourselves.

Heather Small is no doubt proud of this song as it is a national treasure. The challenge is however, to answer the question that she so eloquently puts in her song – “What have you done today to make you feel proud?”

In your form take a few seconds to think of something you’re proud of.

Press play on the song and one by one come up to the front of your form and announce what you’re proud of.

The challenge is to get your whole form up to the front and back in your seats before Heather finishes her song!

Lord help us to encourage and support each other. Amen

proud-faceAs a form – you have lots to be proud of.

It might be a recent performance in a House Competition – it might be how you treat each other, it might just be that you’ve got an awesome form tutor!

Have a think of the top three things you’re proud of and display them on a sign in your form windows for the world to see!

Lord, help us to celebrate the things we do well. Amen.

The-Simpsons-2x21-Three-Men-and-a-Comic-BookThis whole term is about exploring who we really are. Often we define ourselves by the things we accomplish or achieve but is that fair?

This week use the Key Process of “Put Yourself On The Line” to debate the following statement:

Being proud is just showing off and we shouldn’t do it.

Lord, help us to remember that all good things come from you. Amen.

As you know, we are going to use the Scripture from this Sunday’s Gospel to reflect on every Friday. If you are in KS 3/4 You can use your planners to to help you understand the scripture.

This year we want to bring the Word of God to life on a Friday morning to help us reflect and understand scripture a little bit better, so with the help of our school community a different person each week will read our Gospel and share what it means to them. Use your planners to help you discuss and explore the story further.

Lord, help us to know who we are. Amen.
