The role of St Elizabeth’s Prayer Council is:
- To help our school to be a community of faith.
- To encourage our fellow pupils to witness their faith in daily living.
- To develop good relationships within and beyond our school community.
- To support Liturgy, Collective Worship, prayer and the spiritual life of our school.
- To continue to involve pupils in fundraising for charities.
- To continue to develop strong links with our Parish community.
- To support the school in its Mission Statement.
The children will have the opportunity to:
- Read and write prayers that can be used in class and assemblies.
- Plan and prepare displays to highlight our Catholic faith.
- Discuss and pray for various topics in the news.
- Be involved with our existing charity projects.
- Make and send prayer cards to family, friends and parishioners.
- Find out about the work of different groups in the Parish
We hope to raise awareness and to give witness to our school mission statement:
Live Love Learn
‘I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full.’

Prayer Council Meeting 17th September 2021
At their first meeting, the Prayer Council discussed their role and how they will represent their class this year. During Collective Worship, they thought about how they can serve and spread kindness around school. In response, they made kindness badges to display in the corridor to remind everyone that kindness is so important.
2019 – 2020
The Prayer Council have been making cards for the children of East Meru Community School in Tanzania. Miss Schofield and Mrs Whitehill will be visiting the school and are looking forward to attending the school’s very first graduation celebration.
2018 – 2019
This term the Prayer Council has been learning about World War One and how it is 100 years since the war ended. We have been working with YKids to help create a Remembrance Garden in North Park. We have made ‘Sweetheart Pincushions’ – fabric hearts that soldiers used to send back home from the frontline – these will be in North Park Community Garden on 9th – 11th November.
