St Thomas More: The Power to Be

‘Every child has the power in them to achieve great things, no matter what background they come from’, was the core message carried by the CAFOD Young Leadership programme held at St Thomas More School in Wood Green.

Five Sixth Form students participated in the programme and received excellent sessions on developing skills essential for life. It helped pupils learn about justice issues and develop transferable skills like leadership, communication, time management, prioritization and analytics, professionally and socially, which help to build a successful line of capable young leaders. Led by a member of CAFOD, the students were introduced to the ‘Power to Be’ campaign, which taught students to dare to dream of being anyone they wish to be.

Students were positively motivated by the campaign and are using the skills learnt from the sessions to inspire others to develop to their full potential. Students were awarded a certificate of participation to make them feel valued for the interest shown and time devoted towards these sessions.
