Recently our Year Six students and their parents participated in a workshop evening in preparation for
the Sacrament of Confirmation. At the workshop, participants reflected on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit,
how we see them in action through certain people we admire and how we can develop and use them in
our own lives.
Parents were asked to identify one of the gifts they could already see developing in their children. The
children in turn named a gift they recognized in their parents.
