Young Carers Home
At St Anselm's we are aware of the fact that the life of a Young Carer can be reduced to working and caring 24/7 for a parent, sibling or other relative. Mindful of the famous adage, "all work without play makes Jack a dull boy", we create opportunities for our Young Carers to be able to achieve their full potential socially. One such opportunity we provide, at the request of Young Carers, is our termly lunchtime "Young Carers Game Session".
Young Carers Assembly
Between the 23rd January 2020 - 30th January 2020 the Young Carers Ambassadors of St Anselm's Catholic School Canterbury prepared and delivered their assembly to the entire school community; staff and students.
Held annually, this is an opportunity for the Young Carers to educate the staff and students on the work they do in their day to day lives especially the joys and they challenges that go with this.
Find below a few photos that capture some parts of these assemblies..
The Staff and Students of St Anselm Catholic School Canterbury had an opportunity to learn and reflect on the day to day life and challenges of a Young Carer.
This was thanks to the bravery and the collective effort of the following Young Carers Ambassadors.
We render immense gratitude to them, for their readiness to share their unique and touching experiences eloquently and with a smile on their faces.
The Young Carers Assembly Week this year , which coincided with the Young Carers Awareness Week, was a huge success and will forever be remembered in this school community.
St.Anselm's has recently received this award in recognition for its developing support for the young carers within our community.
We are grateful and inspired to continue with our work
