'You're gonna hear us roar' Children's Conferences

In June 2020 we're putting together two weeks of conferences for the children from our schools across the Archdiocese.

With childhood poverty and low-aspirations at an all time low in the North-West our aim is to raise the children's aspirations and get them inspired for their futures.

Our strategy for funding is to offer a three tier donation system.

Large scale - To sponsor a full one day conference the donation cost is £7K.
Medium Scale - To sponsor a class to attend a conference the donation cost is £1K
Small scale - To sponsor individual children to attend a conference the donation cost is £35 per child.

If you or your business/company can help to raise this money we truly believe we would be able to host a festival of days that the children will never forget.

Agenda Ideas:



Inspiring Speaker… Driven by the children’s interests
Activity ‘Future You/Broad Horizons’… Children take a glimpse into the future and explore a world they want to create, career possibilities and the person they will become to broaden horizons and raise aspirations. Could include a creative act from a theatre company to open the scene
Interaction… Tablets used for live feedback and engagement with the children.


Inspiring Curriculum Experiences… Taking a subject and making it amazing including Linking experiences with the world of work/your future e.g. seeing Maths differently through the lens of construction in an inspiring way so that children can contextualise learning to support other conference content
Inspirational videos…..  Throughout the course of the day  we will be showing children on huge interactive screens provided by another partner. 

If you feel you can help us in a non monetary way please get in touch with your ideas.
