Year 8 have spiritual input through daily prayers, weekly assemblies and student led Sacred Spaces. We also have a retreat day and the chance for Confession and Mass throughout the year.
In Year 8 PSHRE lessons we focus on understanding wellbeing, trying to improve self-esteem and instil confidence in our young people. We look at relationships in terms of friendships, this is also linked to communication and learning to be an effective listener. In Year 8 we also teach the dangers of social media and being safe online, as well as bullying, understanding that we are all made in the image and likeness of God. We also look at budgeting and managing our money, focusing on the difference between wants and needs. Looking to the future we spend time preparing students with knowledge about careers and ensuring that they are aware of their strengths.
