CAST provide a space to reflect

CAST – Churches and Schools Together – are a local organisation which aims to develop relationships between local churches and secondary schools in Maidstone. The Academy has now had a strong link with them and each year we look forward to their transformation of our Chapel into a ‘reflection space’

Over the week, they were visited by groups of students from years 7 to 10. The Chapel was set up to provide several interactive, creative and thought-provoking starting points for an activity.  The students were able to use their time in the Chapel as a space to stop and think and reflect on themselves, their lives and the community that they’re a part of. This event is always much appreciated by staff and students as a little oasis of calm during a busy school day.
