Welcome to MJR 24/7 – a unique pastoral care resource for junior secondary students that complements your existing RE curriculum. It is an invaluable guide to help young people journey through their challenging adolescent years and into adulthood.
Based on Jesus' teachings from the Gospel, nine core values are explored through 30 topics. Using a "Jesus in the now" approach, values such as compassion, courage, generosity, gratitude, integrity, kindness, resilience, respect and tolerance are explored in ways that will stimulate dialogue in your classroom.
Created with a view to helping students and staff establish their Catholic Identity, MJR 24/7 not only provides meaningful, relevant and challenging topics to those students who have a strong faith-filled connection to Jesus, but also supports those with little understanding of Jesus and his message.
MJR 24/7 has been tailored to engage students, via relevant issues, to think deeply, reflect, and develop a relationship with themselves, their peers, teachers, parents and their world. It has been trialled across Australia with positive feedback from both teachers and students.
Other key features of MJR 24/7 include:
–Relatable and deep-thinking activities, prayers and reflections designed to be used in pastoral care, home room, retreats and specific curriculum areas.
–Specially selected virtues and values with a connection to Jesus and his presence in the now.
–The opportunity for students to learn more about Jesus' message through scripture.
–A strong focus on journalling and reflective practice.
–A free e-teacher guide with Catholic learning intentions, direct connection to ACARA curriculum, relevant YouTube videos, articles, scriptures and quotes plus extensions.
MJR 24/7 encourages students to turn to the Gospel to foster a relationship with themselves, family, friends, others and Jesus … to be the best they can be. It is truly a book for life.

"I commend MJR 24/7 to any school who wishes to help students deepen their personal relationship with God and nurture their relationships with their peers, their teachers, and their family."

"Having trialled the MJR 24/7 topics a number of times, we have found them to be relevant and engaging. The students enthusiastically participate and the effect of the lessons across our school has been profound with students taking on board the lessons into the classroom and the playground."
