Team Benedict

We are Team Benedict. As members of Team Benedict we are called to enhance the Religious Life of our school. Everyday we live by the gospel values and show others how they can do the same. Being a member of the Team Benedict can be a challenging but very rewarding task. Here are just a few of the tasks which you can find us completing at school: 
  • leading whole school assemblies 
  • establishing a prayer area within the school grounds 
  • bringing new ideas to teachers to make our faith 'come alive' 
  • supporting younger pupils with prayer at lunch time 
  • taking a lead role in school masses 
  • leading the Rosary during the months of May and October 
  • leading activities during Lent and Advent

Leading Harvest Festival (For more information see here)  


Crowning of Mary

May is the month of Mary and to celebrate this the whole school gathered on the playground to watch the crowning of Mary. TEAM Benedict were given the honour of being asked to read at the event. 

Advent Prayer and Liturgy afternoon

Each class took part in an afternoon of Advent Prayer and Liturgy. Here are some of the photos from Year 3's afternoon.

Team Benedict's Advent Promise Tree

TEAM Benedict asked every child in the school to write their advent promise on a bauble to be put on our Christmas tree. We are very proud of all the children for how much thought went into their promises and the effort that went into decorating them.

Why do we not say Alleluia during Lent?

Alleluia means "Praise God". It is a special word that helps us joyfully proclaim that Jesus is risen. We are so happy that we want to sing, pray and shout the word Alleluia.
By not saying the word Alleluia for 40 days during Lent we will hopefully appreciate just how joyful the word is.

TEAM Benedict held an assembly on Shrove Tuesday for the whole school explaining this and put away the letters that spell Alleluia. We will get them out again after Easter and rejoice once more.

Remembrance Service

On Remembrance Sunday TEAM Benedict were invited to attend the Service at St Chad’s church. Two children were chosen to read out some of the names of the fallen soldiers and others laid a wreath on the cenotaph.
