Month of Service (October 2017)
Pupils and staff have taken part in a ‘Month of Service’ throughout October.
During the course of the past few weeks, pupils have taken part in a range of activities to help others, ranging from leading art workshops for pupils of Fosseway School, to sanding refectory tables in Fr Michael’s workshop, and helping Fr James with the Soup Run in Bath to assist the homeless. The 1st XV rugby team also produced a programme to sell at matches, which they sold to make money for the Mary’s Meals charity.
A vast range of other tasks have been taking place throughout the School, including simple jobs such as making a cup of tea for a friend, doing the washing-up, or helping to empty the bins in the boarding house.
