Edmund Rice England - Presence . Compassion . Liberation

INSET with St. Mary’s Prep – ‘The Mount’

On Monday 16th April we enjoyed a splendid afternoon with the staff of St. Mary’s Prep school, ‘the Mount’ in Crosby, Liverpool.

Reminding ourselves of the life of Blessed Edmund, we took inspiration from this ‘ordinary man who did extraordinary things’. ┬áThe charism and values of an Edmund Rice education shine out at this wonderful school where staff and pupils work together putting into practice the eight essentials.

Keen to expand their involvement even further into Network opportunities, staff explored, with the teams help, how we can develop their Edmund Rice ethos over the coming months.

Thank you for a fantastic afternoon and for sharing your time with us.

Feedback form the staff was very positive… ‘thoroughly enjoyed the twilight, learned many things I will be hoping to put into practise here.’
