Last night 5 students went to The Palace of Westminster and first of all met with David Gauke MP who was terrifically accessible. Then they gathered in Committee Room 12, The Palmerston Suite and shared their experiences of two conferences they had attended hosted by Rocking UR Teens. Our students were the only students there, no other young people, and for two of them to stand up and present to senior leaders of blue chip companies, government officials, barristers, members of the armed forces, the music industry and others of influence, I was beyond proud of then. They were a fabulous advocate for themselves and our school.
Last Thursday, 14th June Year 7 and the year team had a wonderful evening at their BBQ to celebrate their first year at St Joan of Arc.
As part of our new Udayan Connect Project, each form class will be connected to a child at Udayan. During a pupil’s time at JOA, they will connect with these children through correspondence and support. We hope that this project will help our own children grow in gratitude for the lives that they have (their material wealth, and also the freedom to live with family) as well as raise much needed funds to enable Udayan continue its work.
Follow the links below to discover more about these children and the Udayan Connect Project:
For more information about Udayan’s mission, JOA’s relationship and to financially support these children please visit joa-udayan.co.uk/sponsor.
