OTHER RESOURCES

Meditation | The Examen

At the end of the day, a week, or a 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 1 (9min) | EXAMEN 2 (9min)

Examen prayers are usually prayed at the end of the day. At other times, pupils should be guided to think back over the day before, the past week or another short period of time.


Other Prayers

Common Catholic Prayers | Prayer & Worship Policy

*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.

Thank you for your support of the Catholic Life of the School

GCSE D&T Papermill Trip

GCSE D&T pupils visited Frogmore Papermill. They had the opportunity to make their own piece of handmade paper, understand printing processes and explore the oldest working papermill in the world with a very cold tour round the mill.

 

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.

#RedWednesday 22nd November

Red is the Christian colour of martyrdom. Christians are the most persecuted faith group in today’s world and #RedWednesday will honour all Christians who suffer and die for their faithfulness to Christ’s message of peace and love. #RedWednesday will shine a light on Christian persecution but also highlight the injustices perpetrated against other faith groups.

JOA will be holding #RedWednesday on Wednesday 22nd November to support the work of Aid to the Church in Need (ACN). ACN are an organisation who work for the rights of those persecuted for their faith around the world.

On Wednesday 22nd November, we are asking that pupils donate 50p (via ParentPay) to support the work of ACN, whilst also wearing an item of red clothing in solidarity with those affected by religious persecution. There will also be student led lessons and reflections taking place in RE lessons and in the Chapel.
