On the morning of January 31st, Year 5 celebrated the feast day of Saint Don Bosco (Saint Giovanni Melchiorre Bosco), who is our class saint, by holding an assembly at Saint Chad’s to both educate other year groups and revel in his sainthood.
Acknowledging his patronage of magicians and school children, amongst others, we aimed to contextualise this learning experience by providing the school with an example of how Saint Don Bosco established his journey into priesthood and beyond.
Consequently, Year 5 used magic, sleight of hand and gymnastics to replicate Saint Don’s approach to delivering vital Catholic teachings.
True to his style, we then delivered gospel readings and reflective prayers and messages that can be utilised by the audience as a ‘Go forth’ ideology used in our community.
As a class, we were delighted by the fantastic feedback.
