During Lent we are supporting the charity 'Mary's Meals'.
Mary's Meals sets up school feeding programmes in some of the world's poorest communities, where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education. Their vision is that every child receives one daily meal in their place of education. It costs just £15.90 to feed a child for a whole school year.
On Friday 28th February we attended school 'Wearing Blue' for a £1 donation. We spent the morning in house groups where we watched a film 'Saving Grace'. We then created our own prayers and thought about how we could give something up for Lent and donate the money to Mary's Meals. The staff were overwhelmed at some of the thoughtful and caring prayers that were wrote.
The School Council are also organising 'The Backpack Project' also run by the charity 'Mary's Meals'.

People all over the UK host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. Join us on 27 September 2019 at 9.10am in our school hall and raise vital dough-nations to help us be right there for more people living with cancer.
In 2018 we raised an incredible £26,914,382 and are aiming to top that this year.
Come along for a coffee, maybe a cake or two all served by our Mini Vinnies!
Our school this Harvest will be supporting both a local and global charity. On the week leading up to our Harvest Festival celebration produce can be brought into school. This will then be collected by the 'Hope and Hospitality' charity, based in South Tyneside.
Also, during this week the children will learn about the Extraordinary Month of Mission that Pope Francis has designated October as. It's objective - to renew the efforts of the entire church to share God's love around the world.
The children will be able to attend school in non uniform on Friday 11th October 2019 for a £1.00 donation. They will learn that be giving a little will help in a much bigger way. Mission Together is a global charity - children helping children.
