Open Morning – Friday 17th May
Year 8 visit the Salvation Army Norwich Citadel
Over the past eleven years our Year 8 children have been visiting the Salvation Army Citadel to learn more about their beliefs on a range of contemporary issues. Last Sunday’s meeting was a Youth Service led by the younger members of the corps and our children enjoyed joining the meeting and helping with a mind-reading magic trick.
The Year 8 pupils are exploring the Salvation Army as part of their Common Entrance Religious Studies Syllabus and used their visit on Sunday to question local Salvationists on a wide range of contemporary issues, ranging from human rights to the treatment of immigrants. The children wrote down the key points from their interviews and will use this information to form the backbone of their end-of-year projects. Our enormous thanks to Alison Gibson who facilitated our visit and to everyone at the citadel for their time and very warm welcome.
The children at Town Close will soon be collecting new toys and tins of food to support the Salvation Army’s ‘Toys and Tins Appeal’ and we look forward to handing over all our donations before Christmas.
