Visit to the Olive Muslim School Hackney
On the 3rd December 2018 the Mission Team in St. Joseph’s Hospice, Hackney (Carolyne Barber and Sr. Maria Coates) were invited to deliver an Assembly to the children of Olive School, Hackney. The Olive School is a Muslim faith primary school, established in response to community demand for high-quality education that meets the aspirations of local families. It is a Muslim faith school that promotes traditional British values and welcomes applications from all faiths and none.
The Mission Team talked about St. Joseph’s Hospice Heritage, Mission, the early work of the Sisters, and the service it provides today. Lots of pupils asked interesting and meaningful questions about the work of the Hospice. Sr Maria and Carolyne reported “We received a great welcome. It was a lovely afternoon which we really enjoyed and we were delighted to hear that the pupils wanted to raise money for St. Joseph’s Hospice in the future. The Assistant Headteacher has invited us back later this year.”
