Holy Souls Five W's

The 5 Ws


The 5Ws are: Word; Welcome; Welfare; Worship and Witness.  It is the framework by which our effectiveness as a Catholic school is assessed.

For our Children, these translate as


  • Word (talk) - we talk together as a word of God's community
  • Welcome (come) - we come together in welcome
  • Welfare (walk) - we walk together as a welfare community
  • Worship (pray) - we pray together as a worship community
  • Witness (work) - we look at our School mission statement and work together as a witness community

You will see these displayed around the school.  You will also hear about these being discussed in assemblies and in class.
