This Week's Gospel - Promise of the Holy Spirit
John 14: 14-31
This time has unique opportunities to support the children to be lifelong learners. We are focusing on these aspects of learner capabilities in order to help them to do this:
- Respond positively to critique of their own explanations and representations (Reverence/Making Meaning).
- Pose relevant questions and make their own investigations and designs across the curriculum. (Resilience / Critical Inquiry).
- Demonstrate and explain that there may be more than one answer while maintaining personal identity (Relationships/Perspectives).
- Independently engage in self-managing, self-sustaining, reflective learning processes (Respect / Taking Action).
Day/Week Suggested Schedule
At school we always start the week with the shared Gospel for the week. You can access it here.
Each day we start with class prayers - the prayer for the day is above. You could start your day's learning by sharing this prayer.
Delivered in Google Classroom - please check daily. Login to your school gmail account to get into your Google Classroom.

You might even write a song. There will be more posted here about how to do this.
All Year 8 leaders, have a think about how we might do Singing Cup if we are not able to do large gatherings.
You could develop your capability of perspective-taking by developing your own way of presenting the song. You could develop your ability to take action by sharing rehearsals of your performance with friends and asking for feedback. You would use the for your own reflection to improve your performance.
