St. Jude's, Wigan, Year 6

We had just fewer than 30 year 6 students at Lowe house for this day; they were looking at the theme of ‘Let your light shine’. The young people really enjoyed this day and got stuck into all aspects of it.

We challenged the young people to think about their own gifts and talents and what they have to offer to their neighbours around them. The day consisted of thinking about how we can use what we have been given for the good of others and of course the good of ourselves. Recognising that we can learn from our class mates and grow in faith and love because of them allowed the young people to realise the value of each one of them.

Knowing that God has a plan for us and he has given us these gifts and talents for a reason challenges the young people to start using them in a more positive way within their community.
