The Pope Francis Team
The Pope Francis Team was created in response to our Building the Kingdom Initiative. The School Council had expressed their concerns which stemmed from Pope Francis' call to care for creation and love of neighbour. It was decided to alamgamte the School Prefect System with the School Council in order to better respond to this. The Motto for the Pope Francis Team is "How can we make this world a better place for all of God's children?
Another change that has emerged out of the Pope Francis Team is the rewards assembly, The focus is now on how the children have made a difference to themselves, others in the class or in the community. The children nominate their peers and this is acknowledged at the Friday Assembly.
Building the Kingdom
At St Anselm's we want to give a practical expression to our Gospel Values and British Values. One way is to focus on making the world a better place for all of God's children. This motto has helped us to in our response to Pope Francis’ “Laudato Si”, and "Fratelli Tutti". This is a wonderful opportunity for the children to engage in Catholic Social Teaching and the teachings of the Church in a practical way.
