Meet The Team – The Pupil Chaplaincy Team
The Pupil Chaplaincy Team
St Malachy’s Pupil Chaplaincy team and its dedicated members are led by Mrs Lockett. The children have a vital role to play in enhancing the Religious Life of our school. The children in Year 4 are given the opportunity to apply each year and are interviewed by Mrs Lockett and Sister Regina and the Pupil Chaplaincy Team.
The job of Pupil Chaplain has a very high profile in school and some of the tasks these pupils carry out include welcoming new pupils and staff to our school, leading Masses and Liturgical events, co-planning, preparing and delivering liturgical prayer in classes throughout the school, leading a range of workshops, fundraising initiatives, intergenerational events and developing the Catholic ethos of the school. The Pupil Chaplains also give advice to children on the Sacramental programme and are excellent role-models to others especially in how to live out our Mission Statement.
The Chaplaincy Team meet regularly to write, review and carry out the termly action plan, something which we will begin early into this new academic year in order to support events from the very beginning of the year.
Our Pupil Chaplains work hard to promote our Catholic faith in school but they are also a wonderful link between St Malachy’s and other schools in our cluster. The Pupil Chaplains do some excellent work by reaching out to other Chaplaincy Teams.
Here are some photos of the Pupil Chaplaincy Team and their hard work, putting faith into action:
