Happy Easter!

We return to school refreshed after a warm and sunny Easter break. Not only renewed after a deserved holiday but renewed in our faith. The Palm Sunday event in school was attended by 150 young people from across Shrewsbury and gave all of us the opportunity to reflect on the Easter message. This followed the Easter services we had in school for all students. The Easter messages of Pope Francis and Archbishop Welby remind us of how we must take our faith forward and spread the Good News in the way we encourage all of our St.Chad's community to do each day.

'The announcement that Jesus is alive changes everything; not simplistically or even instantly do circumstances and situations change. But it changes us. It gives us hope where we were in despair, faith where we were lost, light where we were in darkness, joy where we were entirely in sorrow. That joy in the huge life of Jesus is present in the food banks, the credit unions, the practical down to earth living that the churches are demonstrating across this country.' Archbishop Justin Welby

'This is the culmination of the Gospel, it is the Good News par excellence: Jesus, who was crucified, is risen! This event is the basis of our faith and our hope. If Christ were not raised, Christianity would lose its very meaning; the whole mission of the Church would lose its impulse, for this is the point from which it first set out and continues to set out ever anew. The message which Christians bring to the world is this: Jesus, Love incarnate, died on the cross for our sins, but God the Father raised him and made him the Lord of life and death. In Jesus, love has triumphed over hatred, mercy over sinfulness, goodness over evil, truth over falsehood, life over death.' Pope Francis

Walking the Pathway to Success

nnasCongratulations to St.Chad’s first group of pupils to achieve the National Navigation Award Scheme’s (NNAS) Bronze Award! 

Mr. Keeley was delighted to present certificates to four Year 12 pupils who successfully completed their arduous training and assessment navigational exercises, which recently took place in the Cheshire countryside and the hills of North Wales. Well done boys! The NNAS is a nationally recognised, personal performance, non-competitive, incentive scheme for all ages to learn navigation skills and gain confidence to get out and enjoy the countryside. St.Chad’s has only recently gained the status of ‘provider’ of the NNAS award schemes, which complements our growing Outdoor Education curriculum.

The NNAS is currently being delivered to all pupils in St.Chad’s alternative provision programme, which also includes the delivery of; Forest Schools, the John Muir Award, the CoPE Award and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. The NNAS is yet another opportunity for St.Chad’s pupils to take part in activities which develop self confidence, co-operation, communication, self esteem and self reliance whilst learning practical skills that can provide future opportunities for further study and/or employment.
