You should leave St Joseph’s a more enriched person! A better person than the one who joined; and, you could say, a more employable / successful person later in life.
In signing up to Sixth Form at St Joseph’s you should therefore do so in the knowledge that you are not just signing up to be successful A Level student, but to become a better person.
Therefore, the most important thing with enrichment is not what activities you do, but what the activities do to you! In other words, you should spend time doing activities which make you a better person by the end of Year 12 than the one you were at the end of Year 11.
This will probably mean stepping outside your comfort zone.
It will certainly mean serving and helping others – as we believe that this is the best way to become a better person yourself. It is why at least 12 of your 40 hours must be working with other people to be of service to them.
Ready to serve others needs
The first thing we would like you to do before commencing our Enrichment programme is to reflect on a variety of areas that YOU think can to be improved for personal and charitable growth. Therefore, think about these qualities and whether they can be enhanced to improve you personally – tolerance, responsibility, confidence, aspiration, courage or generosity. These are just a few of the qualities that we aspire for you with our Enrichment Programme in Year 12.
Thought for the day
Thought for the Day makes up one part of the Y12 tutor programme. It is designed as a way to enable every member of year 12 to contribute to the extra-curricular and religious life of the 6th Form.
Thought for the Day is aimed to make you aware of current issues and to develop you as a person, and as such will take the form of a presentation that lasts for a minimum of 8 minutes, which reflects on social and ethical issues. It will be expected that this presentation has both a clear focus and be personal to you – be passionate about it! In need of some guidance as to what makes a good though for the day?
