I was away on a “pupil leadership training weekend” organised by SU the weekend past there (as in I came home yesterday!). It was fantastic! There were about 55-60 people there from 14 different schools around N.Ireland, and we just came together to talk and share ideas about our CU’s and connect with each other.
On Sunday morning during our last session, a guy called Mark said something during an ‘open mic’ time that I will never forget. He was talking about his specific situation in school…
“We have 5 people on our SU committee – thats nearly half the 12 disciples, and if they touched the whole world and we are only trying to reach one school – I think we can handle it!”
In Academy, we have 10 people on committee and 2-4 teachers involved at different stages… thats more than the 12 disciples… and we are only trying to reach one school… BRING IT ON!
