The Edmund Rice group is a group of Year 6 boys and girls who meet weekly to reflect on the life of Edmund Rice. Each meeting begins with the prayer to Blessed Edmund and then time is given to how the group at Runnymede can be inspired by the vision of Edmund Rice.

They help lead our school in prayer and charitable works. They assist in organizing the harvest collection of food for distribution among the needy. They marshal the course during the Harvest Fun Run. The group lead various collective worships such as All Saints Day and of course, celebrate the feast day of Blessed Edmund with a memorable assembly retelling the life and thoughts of Edmund Rice.

Together with other pupils, they send letters to the children and staff in our twinned school The Blessed Tansi in Sierra Leone. The group meets with the Christian Brother schools’ officer for reflections and how to achieve the Edmund Rice award and works with other Edmund Rice groups in Christian Brother Schools in the North West.

They are a supportive and hard working group, trying very hard to use all their talents in keeping the spirit of Blessed Edmund Rice alive in our school.
