CATHOLIC LIFE

At the End of the Day, Week, or Half Term it is recommended to do an Examen. This is a prayerful reflection of the day, that helps us to grow in gratefulness and learn from the moments that challenge us. You can listen to a version of an Examen Prayer below:

EXAMEN PRAYER (9 minutes)

OTHER RESOURCES – Please note that if using other resources or a more spontaneous approach to prayer, the School Resource should still be read and a whole-school focus incorporated into the prayer time regularly.
Other resources: Examen Prayer Audio | ‘How To’ Morning Prayer | Common Catholic Prayers | Prayer & Worship Policy

Last week our Year 10 GCSE students visited ‘Butler and Sons’ butchers on New Road Croxley Green

Steve Butler kindly demonstrated how to debone and portion a whole chicken. Thank you

Then yesterday the students deboned and portioned their own chicken and they made chicken bites. some also made a chicken stock. In their forthcoming lessons they will make  hunters chicken, chicken wrapped in bacon stuffed with spinach and ricotta cheese and spicy buffalo wings from their whole chicken.

Year 10 GCSE students visited the FOOD: Bigger than the Plate  exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It explored how innovative individuals, communities and organisations are radically re-inventing how we grow, distribute and experience food.

This exhibition took us on a sensory journey through the food cycle, from compost to table, it posed questions about how the collective choices we make can lead to a more sustainable, just and delicious food future in unexpected and playful ways.

Food bank delivery

Thank you so much to everybody in years 10 &11 who donated items to the food bank We delivered them this morning and they were very gratefully received by Iris Bangs who is a trustee and runs the centre. She gave a us a tour and explained how our donations will be distributed. She really wants everyone at St Joan of Arc to know how much impact our partnership with food bank is making in the local community.

She has asked us to keep them in our prayers particularly as they are about to open a night shelter on a Friday. Iris is truly inspirational. She sees the face of Christ in all and encourages us to do the same.
