My name is Sarah Newton, I'm in my second year at Moorlands College, near Bournemouth, studying Theology and Youth and Community Work. In our second and third years at college, we get the chance to do a 5 week block placement in any area that takes our fancy; that we're passionate about; and/or an area we feel God is calling us to. For me, recently, I've felt that God has really placed schools work on my heart, whether that be teaching or some other form of schools work. So where better to come and do my placement than to schoolswork.co.uk and LCET!?
I've been here for a week now, and have had a fantastic chance to meet with people working in all different areas of schools work. It has been a real eye opening time, where God has spoken to me and revealed more of the area I feel He's calling me to. Speaking to everyone here has been really inspirational and encouraging, seeing their hearts for young people and the way God has used them in so many young people's lives. In meeting some of the young people too it has been heart breaking hearing their stories, but then hearing how LCET has changed their life for good, has been truly fantastic!
Over the next 4 weeks I will be blogging about my time here, as well as writing reviews for different resources from schooolswork.co.uk, self-harm.co.uk and LCET. My first blog is a review on the self-harm DVD. I hope it may be useful for you: http://www.schoolswork.co.uk/thinking/entry/self-harm-dvd-review/
Grace and peace,
