This week, Animate welcomed Year 7 pupils from All Hallows who joined us over the course of three days; looking at the theme of ‘let your light shine’ from Matthew’s Gospel. The main focus of the morning session was split into four workshops focusing on: teamwork activities, self-worth, circle time with their form tutors and a creative workshop preparing for their Year 7 welcome Mass.
The afternoon was spent focusing on a challenge to help recognise the difficulties some people are placed in, using refugees as an example and focusing on what Cafod does to help these situations. This brought us onto our final focus of the day which was using flame images to gather thoughts as to how the young people were going to let their light shine this year in their year 7 communities.
We would like to thank All Hallows for a fun and engaging few days together.
