Meet our Christian Distinctiveness Committee:
The Christian Distinctiveness Committee exists to help highlight and embed our school Vision: ‘Teach children how they should live and they will remember it all their lives.’ The committee have a variety of responsibilities, including: setting up the KS2 hall for worship; operating the technology required to deliver worship sessions; leading the worship in both Key Stages at particular times throughout the school year; leading the KS2 Church Services at Harvest, Christmas, Easter and in the Summer at the end of year service, as well as helping to evaluate Worship. In addition, the committee aims to raise the profile of Picture News in school, often using playtimes to ask staff and children across the school how they might respond to the question of the week. The committee takes an active role in planning, preparing and delivering Christian Values Day in school; it also represents HWR at the LDST Ethos days.
We are delighted that we have an enthusiastic team of children on the committee; they are becoming increasingly proficient at showing visitors around school, pointing out all that makes us distinctively Christian and articulating what it means to be a member of a church school and why they are glad to be a part of HWR.
Our Sponsored Child
Agnes is our sponsored child. She lives in Tanzania in Africa.
The children fundraise each year to raise money for Compassion UK so that we can support Agnes. This means that she will be able to take part in activities that teach her skills that she will use and remember all her life. We receive letters from Agnes and we also send her emails and pictures too.
