In addition to our wide variety of regular activities, the Faith Life of Blessed Trinity is enhanced by occasional enrichment days.
Blessed Trinity recently hosted a Romero Day with the Gift teams from all the school in the Romero Family Trust, during which we explored how the life of St Oscar Romero inspires and influences our identity. Pupils reflected on how we are God’s microphone, speaking for the voiceless. Our day concluded with a prayerful celebration of Mass.
During Interfaith Week in November 2022 we ran an Interfaith Day, with Input from Building Bridges. Workshops involved Muslim pupils and staff from school who shared their commitment to the Five Pillars, our Eco group who helped pupils look at how stewardship is addressed in different faiths , a Hindu Bollywood dancer, a Sikh drummer, Fr David one of our priests , Pastor Mick founder of the Church on the Street, the cooking of Jewish festival foods, our Faith Friends from Building Bridges, an Arabic calligrapher, the Sikh Education Officer, Buddhist meditation and a local Muslim women’s group.
Year 8 pupils took part in our annual Faith Trails to St John’s RC Church and Ghausia Mosque - in collaboration with Building Bridges (Burnley). Pupils particularly enjoyed being shown around Ghausia Mosque by Cllr Afrasiab Anwar MBE
In 2022 and 2023 Blessed Trinity hosted the Aiming Higher Conference which brought together pupils from eleven schools from across the Salford Diocesan. A panel comprising ‘A’ level lecturers from two local Sixth Form Colleges, the previous vice-rector of the English College Rome, a Jewish teacher and a representative from Caritas helped us to explore some of the Big Questions of meaning and purpose at the heart of Religious Education and raise aspirations for pupils. A Senior Examination assessor closed the day with helpful advice for pupils. This study afternoon was well received by pupils and staff alike.
