A BIG thank you to all of our families for their donations to CAFOD this Lent. From the sponsor money from our Walk for Hunger and the pennies donated from taking part in Lent Family Fast we have raised over £1000!

CAFOD Lent Fast Day

Friday, 11 March 2022

Well done to all of the children for taking part in CAFOD’s Lent Fast Day. The children all joined in by fasting their playtime snack – closing the Fairtrade Tuck Shop – and donating the money to CAFOD. Thank you to our families for their generous donations 🙏🏼

Walk for Hunger

Tuesday, 1 March 2022

The children should all feel very proud of themselves today as they took part in CAFOD’s Walk for Hunger. The children raised money by getting sponsored to walk laps around the playground carrying items just as refugees often have to when fleeing a country. Thank you to all our families for their support 😊

Thank you!

THANK YOU! A BIG thank you to everyone who was able to make a donation to charity today in exchange for wearing a Christmas jumper / own clothes to school. We raised £154.40 which will be divided between the classes. The children in each class are currently thinking and discussing which charity they would like to support!

Supporting Refresh

Thursday, 18 November 2021

Well done!

Today we delivered our latest collection of food to the Refresh Food Bank in Dudley. Each week the children bring in donations of food and helpful items from home and then take it in turns to deliver it to the food bank and learn about the important work they do to help others.

Thank you!

CAFOD’s Assembly

Thursday, 22 April 2021

The assembly ready to share!

On Thursday 22nd April the children took part in CAFOD’s Eyes of the World National Assembly.

The assembly was all about the issue that the climate is in crisis and how affects us all. But it is the poorest communities who are suffering the most. The eyes of the world are on us this year as Britain hosts world leaders for the United Nations’ climate change talks – COP26.

The children found the assembly extremely interesting and are keen to do all they can to help!

As part of our call to Give Alms during Lent the children and their families have donated tins of food and other useful goods for the Good Shepherd Shelter in Wolverhampton. We are amazed at everyone’s generosity – Thank you!
