10 <strong>The</strong> <strong>Parish</strong> <strong>Magazine</strong> - <strong>May</strong> <strong>2022</strong> the parish noticeboard — 3 STAY IN THE CLASSROOM, ON STAY on Sunday Our group that meets every 2nd, 4th & 5th Sunday of each month continues to deepen faith, challenge world views and grow our confidence in who God is and who he calls us to be in the world. Most recently we have looked at the theme of relationships and covered topics such as: ‘Is it ever ok to judge others?’ and ‘What is our relationship with our phone like?’ <strong>The</strong> young people were shocked to learn that the first mobile phones didn’t have the internet, didn’t have snap chat or instagram, they barely worked as a phone sometimes with poor reception in many places! STAY in Schools As part of the STAY youth work we continued this month with our work in all four local schools through assemblies and mentoring. Plus we had the privilege of being part of the values day at Sonning School and a special prayer activity with Piggott students. Values Day at Sonning On Thursday 24 March, I had the privilege of helping at Sonning School with their ‘School Values Day’. We covered curiosity and respect with years 3 and 4 and we looked at courage and aspiration with years 5 and 6. Some of the answers to the questions were simply brilliant and at times humorous: Q: What are you scared of? A: 'Smelly cheese', 'Spiders' and 'Roller coasters'. Q: What are you interested in? A: 'Tech', 'Bugs and insects' and 'God'. Prayers for Ukraine Our work at <strong>The</strong> Piggott School Wargrave continues to help grow and embed the school's Christian values and vision among the students. This month we had the privilege of leading students in writing positive thoughts, messages of hope and prayers, on blue and yellow leaves, for the people of Ukraine. We then took their leaves and added them to the reflection room tree.
