The G.I.F.T Chaplaincy Team
Saint Martin the patron Saint of Chaplains
The G.I.F.T Chaplaincy Team( Led by Mrs Passerini ) is entrusted with the responsibility of supporting the Catholic life of the school. G.I.F.T standing for "Growing in Faith Together" sums up perfectly the aims and ambitions of this team. Our school's Catholic ethos, although diverse, is to follow common values and unite by a shared vision of life.
Our mission is to promote Gospel values and teachings of the Catholic Church rooted in a commitment to social justice and the common good and to attend to the spiritual needs of the children.
"It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me" (Galations 2:20)

Hope in the Future Prayer for schools
God our loving Father, we thank you
for blessing our parish communities
with all that we need
to respond to our vocation
to be missionary disciples.
We ask you to pour out afresh
the gifts of your Spirit upon each one of us,
that we may be inspired to serve you
in new and creative ways,
bringing your light to the world.
We ask your blessing upon us
as we journey together in hope
through Christ Our Lord
