Since 1990, Operation Christmas Child – an initiative of the Christian relief and
development agency Samaritan’s Purse – has been blessing underprivileged children
around the world with gift-filled shoeboxes wrapped and packed by children and adults in
It’s a campaign that thousands of schools, churches and other organisations from across
the UK get involved with between the September and November each year. In fact, it is
now the UK’s largest children’s Christmas appeal.
On Friday 7th October 2016 our school raised funds for CAFOD. By bringing in £1 per child we dressed up in our bright coloured hair bobbles/hair bands, ties and socks to 'Brighten up for harvest to build a better world'.
Please have a look below at some of our bright photos.
We also had a man called Ged Edwards come into our school from the CAFOD organisation to talk about how our money can help those in need.
Please find photos below.
As a school we decided to raise money to help support a school in Gambia, the school needed help with their building work.
During our sports day all children took part in a 'skipathon'. The total amount raised was £661.53!
We have recently received a letter from Mrs Catherine Flynn who commented "I cannot thank you enough for this donation as it will help support the children for sometime. Please pass on my sincere gratitude to the children, parents and staff at your school. We greatly appreciate your efforts. Thank you"
As head I would personally like to thank the whole school community for your kindness, generosity and support for the many appeals and projects that the school is involved in throughout the year. We may be a small school but we have a big heart and work together as a team to help others in need.
