Local Schools Worker, Airdrie & Coatbridge
WHAT I DO
I work with schools in the Airdrie and Coatbridge area, supporting them in a number of ways. I enjoy leading assemblies which help the spiritual development of the whole school as well as working with individual classes for Religious and Moral Education, which is a key part of the Curriculum for Excellence.
We want lessons to be exciting and involving and I spend much of my time presenting a fantastic programme called Bible Alive. These lessons take P6 and P7 pupils through the storyline of the Bible using storytelling, drama, music, quizzes and sign language in interactive, engaging instalments. Pupils and staff are very enthusiastic about having Bible Alive in school; it covers a lot of RME in a fun and stimulating way and provides a helpful resource for busy teachers.
We have SU groups taking place in several schools where we meet with children and young people to have fun and fellowship and to help them discover more about following Jesus. With more requests for groups than we can take up, we are always looking for people who have the time and the desire to explore the Bible with children. Do get in touch if this is something you could do.
Out with school, I also like to assist local churches in their work with children and young people; to support volunteers with training and to run clubs during the summer holidays where children can come for friendship, games, general messiness and to find out more about the amazing God who loves them.
