Scripture Union Weekend 2013

From Friday 8th to Sunday 10th March members of Grosvenor’s Scripture Union made the journey to Whitepark Bay Youth Hostel on the North Coast for its annual S.U. Weekend. 

29 pupils in Forms 2 – Upper 6th, accompanied by teachers Mr Young, Mr Cowan and Miss Semple, engaged in a series of discussions, participated in various games organised by 6th formers Matthew Allen and Catherine Johnston - including a most enjoyable Treasure Hunt, and engaged in relaxing activities such as shopping in Coleraine town centre.

A particular highlight of the event was the return of former Grosvenor teacher Mr Jamie Meaklim, currently teacher of Physical Education at Shimna College, as guest speaker.  During the course of the weekend Mr Meaklim delivered a series of educational and thought-provoking talks on ’The Jesus Generation’ which were well received by all in attendance.

The S.U. Weekend, organised primarily by the School’s Sixth Form Committee, is an ever-popular feature of the Scripture Union calendar and provides pupils and teachers alike with the opportunity to worship and socialize in a relaxed environment. 

Many thanks to all of the staff members and pupils who helped to make 2013’s S.U. weekend such a resounding success.
