Making Your Mark is our annual pupil leadership training event where we aim to bring together Senior School pupils from across Northern Ireland, to ground them in Bible teaching, give them space to share and glean ideas for their local context, learn from one another and be inspired and equipped for the year ahead. There are seminars focusing on ‘life issues’ as well as ‘SU issues’ e.g. running a Junior SU or how to give a talk. We include small groups to allow them to get to know others from different schools. We hope this a place to show the young people the bigger family of SU they are connected with.
Unite is our National Secondary Schools event aiming to bring together SU groups from schools all across Northern Ireland, for a time of praise, prayer, teaching and fellowship. We hope that this event shows them the bigger picture of what they a part of and gives us a chance to do SU on a bigger scale.
Inters SU is the name given to our local inter-schools events headed up by our E3 schools workers. We believe it is important that pupils realise they aren’t alone and can ‘do SU together’ no matter the scale or how regularly they meet. The frequency and format of Inters differs from District to District, but the aim (to meet, share with and encourage others from our locality) is always the same.
SHINE is a free 3 week resource aimed at Secondary Schools. It is a partnership project with SUNI, Crown Jesus Ministries, LMI, SU Scotland and SU England & Wales.
