One 2 Three
Ian and Fiona from BSCWT said how great it was to be back working in 24+ primary sector schools and 6 secondary schools. The schools had been very appreciative on the on-line material provided during the pandemic, but welcomed back BSCWT staff for their five key activities in schools. These are assemblies, lessons, pupil support, lunch-time clubs and prayer spaces. They have 7 staff and 40-50 volunteers who work in a wide range of roles. BSCWT has a history of engagement with local schools stretching back thirty years. Ian talked about the ‘It’s your move ‘ project that they have just begun in 24 schools with Year 6 pupils. This helps the children acknowledge their hopes and anxieties around moving schools though looking at the parable told by Jesus of two builders. One builder built a house on sand. The other on rock. The interactive sessions end with each pupil being given an Its your move booklet, funded by local churches. Fiona talked about LifeSpace. This is a careers-related project Fiona is running with year 10 students later in the year.
