Operation Christmas Child
We will once again be taking part in the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox appeal, organised by Samaritan's Purse.
The shoebox appeal is when you give to children who will receive a gift at Christmas. This ties in with our Christian message of "giving to those less fortunate than ourselves".
We would like you to choose whether to make a parcel for a girl to a boy and you can indicate the age range your gift is aimed at.
We want to bring joy into these children's lives so we ask you to keep them fun but to give things that they might need
Please click on the link for ideas about what to pack in the parcel
It is one parcel per child but if you would like to fill extra boxes additional leaflets are available from the available from the office
Please return to school by Wednesday 15th November.
Harvest Fast Day 2017
“Jesus asks us to forgive and to give. To be instruments of mercy because it was we who first received mercy from God.” Pope Francis, Misericordiae Vultus, #14
This year to celebrate CAFOD’s harvest fast day we are asking the children to Brighten Up this Harvest – to help build a brighter world and to put into action the corporal work of mercy: feed the hungry. On Friday 6th October we will be asking children to come dressed in bright clothes and bring £1 which will go to CAFOD.

As part of CAFOD we had an assembly where we learnt about how people in South America were in poverty. We learnt how they were taught to grow crops, use the same crops to grow more crops, and how they harvested.
To celebrate CAFOD Day in school, all the children came to school wearing bright clothes, with earthly colours. Each child donated a pound; this was our way of raising money to help the families in the world who are in need. This made us think about all the people that need help, and made us think how fortunate we are to have all the things we need to live.
