LOCHYSIDE pupils’ receive Pope Francis Faith Awards.
LOCHYSIDE pupils’ received recognition for their faith and commitment after 18 months of hard work.
22 students were handed their Pope Francis Faith Awards at their end of year assembly last week.
The programme was set up by the Bishops of Scotland three years ago encouraging youngsters to show their faith in their daily actions at school, at home and in their parish community.
Violet Smith, head teacher, explained: ‘The children have been working on their faith awards over a period of 18 months. They maintain a portfolio of evidence during the course of the programme, and this is assessed by a panel of people from the Scottish Catholic Education Service.
Eight of the children also received a Parish Commendation which reflects the work that they have done through their involvement with their parish of St. John’s. This includes participating in church services, fundraising for charities
