This week, Animate welcomed all Year 7 pupils from Hope Academy who joined us for day retreats, which were spread across four days. Based on the theme of ‘Let your shine’ from Matthew’s Gospel, the pupils were encouraged to consider how the gifts and talents they had been given could positively impact the people around them.
Throughout the day, the pupils enjoyed a variety of activities, which highlighted the importance of working as a team. We emphasised how, through using their individual gifts and talents they could become a more effective team, and by working together and making their light shine they could make the world a brighter place.
We had a fantastic few days with the Year 7s and wish them a wonderful first year.
