good luck yr 12


holy spiritI have really enjoyed co-ordinating and being involved with children’s liturgy for many years now.  I remember starting children’s liturgy when my first daughter, Sarah was in Kindergarten at St Kieran’s school and Sarah is now 23 years old so we’re looking at over 18 years.  I can’t even remember when I took on the role as co-ordinator but it probably was a couple of years after starting as a volunteer.  I can truly say that Children’s Liturgy together with being a Catechist is the most satisfying and rewarding ministries that I have been a part of.  However, I feel that it is time for me to step down as co-ordinator and a volunteer of children’s liturgy and for someone else to take on this very satisfying and rewarding role.

I am looking for someone to take on this role beginning in Term 4 of this year, Monday, 15 October.  You may even wish to share this role with a friend or two.

helpWe need your help for one of the following schools only until the end of Term 4. Training and support will be available.

  • Manly Vale Public School - Year 4 class on Wednesdays from 9:00am to 9:30am
  • Allambie Heights Public School – Kindergarten class on Wednesdays from 11:40am to 12:10pm
  • Allambie Heights Public School - Year 4 class on Wednesdays from 12:20pm to 12:50pm
  • Allambie Heights Public School - Year 6 class on Wednesdays from 12:20pm to 12:50pm
  • Brookvale Public School – Kindergarten class on Fridays from 11.30am to 12pm

Teaching catholic scripture at any of these schools would suit anyone who have been a scripture teacher in the past or anyone who is confident to step straight into a classroom situation and teach catholic scripture.  You do not need to be teacher trained.  The Diocese provide us with a curriculum that is taught at the schools.  Please note that I am also always looking for scripture teacher helpers to go into the classroom with a teacher and assist.
