This year SJS has a dedicated Gift team who have a vital role to play in enhancing the Religious Life of our school. Our Gift team are easily identified in school by their jumpers and lanyards.
As members of The GIFT Team, we have a very important job to spread the Word of God throughout our school and the school community. It is our mission to interpret scripture so that children can better understand stories from the Bible and relate them to their own lives.
The Gift team and Mini Gift team have a very high profile in school You may see us around school leading community prayer, which is usually at 8.30am every Thursday in our prayer room, leading the prayers in our own classrooms, helping deliver whole school liturgy and collective worship, welcoming visitors and new pupils to our school and organising liturgical events.
We work hard to promote our Catholic faith in school.
