Kilgraston celebrates Goals Day 2021
Each year Kilgraston focuses on one of the five Sacred Heart Goals, with Goals Day an opportunity for the whole school to spend time working on projects and in groups to learn about the year’s theme in more detail, hear from influential people in that field and work on action plans.
This year’s Sacred Heart Goal is ‘Community’ and this term we have focused on the idea of community in terms of our relationships with each other, charity and environmental awareness.
Upper Sixth have just led a Charities Week for the school, which has involved every year group researching and presenting information about a charity they would like to support throughout the year.
This information has been turned into artwork and information posters (displayed in various locations throughout the school) as well as a special video about the different charities. Upper Sixth also brought back iPray24, but this time as iPray12+12. The Side Chapel was beautifully arranged and decorated into a range of prayer stations, whereby individuals or classes could come and visit from 7.00am-7.00pm over two days.
Charities Week culminated in this term’s ‘Goals Day’ on Thursday 7th October, where we celebrated our own Kilgraston community with a range of fun activities, including a charity ‘Soak the Staff and Upper 6’ fundraiser for CHAS!
We were honoured to welcome Anya Hart Dyke, our special guest speaker for the day, who inspired our junior and senior pupils with engaging and interactive talks about the environment. Anja
We were also inspired by Upper Four Katie’s presentation about her parents’ farm, which then led into a goal-setting session to support the UN’s International Day of the Girl. The chaplain was very grateful to the Head Girl Team and Upper 6 for their wonderful contributions to the planning and delivery of all these events – a brilliant demonstration of community!Back to News
