The SVP (Saint Vincent de Paul) group has been up and running since September 2014. The pupils get involved in many activities around school, such as the Year 6 Induction Day, the Year 9 retreat afternoons, the Year 8 Vocations Day and they also write and deliver assemblies to the lower school students.
This year they have also written and delivered their own Stations of the Cross service to all students in the main school, during their RE lessons.
As well as these activities in school the pupils also get involved in outreach work, having undertaken some volunteer work at a local care home and at the Dougie Mac Hospice, where they support the lottery department.
It is hoped that going forward, they are able to support in the residential care section of the Dougie Mac hospice also.
The group are very good at coming up with their own thoughts and ideas, with two of our pupils successfully organising a Henna workshop for the school where pupils could pay £2 for a small, non-permanent Henna tattoo to be applied to their hand.
This raised over £200 for the SVP twinnage scheme which is the charity the girls chose to support.
