Developed between the education offices of Ireland, Northern Ireland and England, we are glad to be running the pilot of our Student Leadership Certificate for senior pupils. A series of 12 modules designed to encourage a deeper knowledge of the heritage and current context of the Edmund Rice mission, students are both examined and challenged to take out their newly acquired knowledge to demonstrate leadership qualities in their communities.
The pandemic situation has, in some ways, made the delivery of this course easier for Tom and Ann who are jointly delivering the sessions with groups from St Anselm’s and St Joseph’s via weekly Zoom meetings. We look forward to seeing the impact in schools of their learning!
O God, we thank you for the life of Edmund Rice.
He opened his heart to Christ present in those oppressed by poverty and injustice.
May we follow his example of faith and generosity.
Grant us the courage and compassion of Edmund as we seek to live lives of love and service.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
