*WCCS uses the Alive to the World programme
Around the world more than 90,000 students use Alive to the World, and the programme is officially recommended by the Brazilian Bishops Conference.
Alive to the World continues to be developed and will be supported by interactive computer programs for students and teachers.
In just a year, the Alive to the World programme has become a fixture in our School life. The ease with which the themes encountered in the classroom can be taken up in form assemblies to the whole School has been especially useful. Besides this exchange of ideas across the whole School, we have also found that the programme communicates our ethos effectively to parents. We include the learning objectives in our weekly newsletter, so that parents can understand more clearly, and welcome, the values we try to communicate to our children.

I thought the Caring and Sharing book gives a real visual imagery of what your parents tell you but which you haven’t before been able to see. I also liked all the facts I learnt.
