Spirituality at St. Matthew's

What is Spirituality in our school?

It is very difficult to put into words what ‘spirituality’ is because it is a very personal experience. It differs from person to person, and often spirituality changes within people during their lifetime. It is not the same thing as having a religion or a faith: a person can be spiritual without having a particular faith.

As a school staff we have worked together to have an agreed definition of spirituality.

We define it as:

‘Something that we experience, not something that we can see. It is about awe and wonder, critical reflection, inspiration and being aware of something ‘bigger’ outside of ourselves….’
