Friday, 3 December 2021

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

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!

All of our tins of food!

On Friday 4th December the children brought in tins of food for the Good Shepherd Appeal in Wolverhampton in exchange for wearing their own clothes to school.
