Hello and Welcome to the Collective Worship Council page!
This year we have a new enthusiastic group of children who have been chosen to represent our school as Collective Worship Councillors. The children who volunteered for the role, and were then selected by their class teachers, were chosen because of their kind- hearted and Christian- like attitude. The members of the Collective Worship Council have a great knowledge of our Magdalen School Values and are experts at demonstrating them around school.
As a Collective Worship Councillor the children may be required to assist Mr Locke and Mr Smith in planning assemblies, taking part in church services, teaching other children in their class about Christian topics, creating drama sketches on Bible stories, demonstrating values in assemblies and writing prayers. They will also be required to attend meetings with other Collective Worship Councillors to discuss assemblies and how they can make them even more exciting. It is our job to create a wonderful Christian Ethos in our church school.
New to our list of jobs this year; approximately once a month, after school, we are hoping to visit the church at Thorpe St Peter to help with the cleaning and gardening. Also we may get the opportunity to take part in some Sunday services at the church on special occasions like Christmas and Easter.
All of our councillors have very important jobs that are specifically linked to our Collective Worship which takes place on a Monday and Tuesday during assembly.
Some of their jobs include;
- keeping the reflection area tidy
- writing prayers for assemblies
- demonstrating how to use our school values
- meeting every Wednesday lunchtime to plan assemblies, discuss how their jobs are going, write prayers and lots more..
- feeding back the minutes of our meetings to Mr Smith
- monitoring the playground looking for children who don’t have anyone to play with, so they can invite them to play with them
- looking for children who are using their Magdalen School Values
- helping Mr Smith or Mr Locke in assemblies and at Church services by acting out plays, telling stories and reading prayers

Alongside our School Council the Collective Worship Council represent our school and are important leaders in our setting.
From myself (Miss Martin), Mr Locke, Mr Smith and all of the Collective Worship Councillors thank you for taking the time to read our page and
MAY THE PEACE OF THE LORD BE WITH YOU ALL!
