Georgina Varney – St Margaret’s Church Worker
I am based at St Margaret’s CE Primary School every Tuesday and Thursday. My role within school is to support the children, parents and staff and to encourage and develop faith within the school community. This is carried out in a variety of ways through weekly assemblies with both Key Stages; supporting RE in the Curriculum with different year groups and through relevant story telling in Nursery and Reception, including drama.
Representatives from each class in Key Stage 2 can also be part of the school ‘Worship Team’ where they can bring ideas for prayers and assembly topics.
I also seek to develop our children’s sense of care for our world by encouraging support for those less fortunate than ourselves by raising awareness, and financial support.
On the second and last Sunday of the month I run ‘Children@Church’ at St Margaret’s Church. The cross over between church and school is very important to the development of our children as we seek to live out the teaching of God’s on a daily basis.
