Our House Leadership Teams have undertaken the following work to demonstrate their commitment to our community and to school improvement.

St. Andrew House leaders are continuing to explore new ways to promote positive mental well-being across St. Mungo's Academy.  They have provided Tutor classes with mindfulness activities to use during tutor time and are also working together on ways to raise money for SCIAF during Lent and Advent.  They also presented on COP26 activities because all young people deserve a safe place to live.  

St Enoch House has focused on spreading awareness of our schools Period Poverty campaign.  Sanitary products are available in the girls' bathrooms as well as staff bathrooms for free.  In partnership with Glasgow City council an App called PickupmyPeriod was launched to help young women and their families locate sanitary products out of school.  This App gives our young people a map of the city with marked locations which shows where products will be available for free.   

St Francis House work is based around our Charism of caring for all God’s creations. In the past year they have worked towards and will be continuing their project of gaining an Eco Schools Green Flag, focusing on litter, biodiversity and wellbeing, aiming to protect the right of future generations to a clean and safe environment.  They have also worked with Glasgow City Council cleansing department to address some of these areas.   St Francis leaders also examined the equalities act protected characteristics and discussed how these matched with the House charism of "Caring for all God's creations."  They have been planning the creation of recycled bird feeders, bug hotels and an art project in our local community garden.   

St Ninian House Leaders worked towards building community by being strong advocates for faith and supporting others by being Christian-like towards others.  They raised funds for those less fortunate through Lenten and Advent activities including collecting for local food banks.? They encouraged everyone to become involved and created a positive experience for the whole school community. ? 

Brother Walfrid was a member of the Marist order, the group who established our school for the educational benefit of the poor.
