    ‘You Crayon for Ukraine’

    We are sure that you have all been very upset and worried about the situation in Ukraine. We have all seen the heart breaking coverage on the television and heard about the desperation of so many innocent people.  Some of our children have expressed their concern over the situation and we have been praying together asking for peace.  As a school, we want to find a way of raising vital funds to help the people who need it most.

    We are going to have a class colouring competition ‘Crayon for Ukraine’.  It will cost £2 to enter and all the money will go to support those in the Ukraine. Please bring your completed colouring picture in by Friday 18th March with your £2 entry (or more if you wish).  Each class will choose their winner by the end of the school day.

    We also think it would be a great sign of our support for Ukraine if we wear the colours of their flag - BLUE and/or YELLOW,  also on Friday 18th March.

    We thank you for your support in all our efforts to help those in need.

  • Ukraine Crisis - Talking to Your Child

    Mon 28 Feb 2022

    With world events surrounding the Ukraine and Russian conflict, children and young people may be hearing words like ‘bombing’, ‘invasion’ and ‘World War Three’ in posts on Instagram, TikTok and other social media sites, as well as on the news or overhearing adult conversations.  Children on social media may be seeing a range of posts; some factual, some memes, some scaremongering, and may be worried or confused about what is happening and the impact this may have on them.

     

    There is some good advice on supporting your child if they see or hear upsetting news at the following websites:

    Childnet

    Metro News

    BBC Newsround have created a roundup for young people about the situation in Ukraine, which can be a good way to start a conversation with your child if they are seeing content online BBC Newsround

     

    If children are upset by what's going on in the news at the moment they can  read this guide.

     

     

     

  • Mental Health Week

    Mon 07 Feb 2022

    Children's Mental Health Week is taking place on 7th -13th February 2022. This year's theme is “Growing Together”. Growing Together is about growing emotionally and finding ways to help each other grow. Challenges and setbacks can help us to grow and adapt, and trying new things can help us to move beyond our comfort zone into a new realm of possibility and potential. However, emotional growth is often a gradual process that happens over time, and sometimes we might feel a bit ‘stuck’.

    It is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on children and young people's mental health. By getting involved, you'll not only be raising important awareness, but also vital funds to ensure every child has easy access to mental health support.

    On Friday 11th February, we would like to invite all children to

    ‘Dress to Express’. 

    This could be through favourite colours, hairstyles, favourite sports kits, party clothes…whatever your child wants to wear as an expression of themselves - be as creative as they like for a £1 donation. 

    THANK YOU

  • "Go Green" Day

    Mon 18 Oct 2021

    On Thursday 21st October we will be holding a "Go Green" day in support of CAFOD.

    This autumn, leading up to the climate talks in November, we are asking you to Go Green by taking on a climate-related fundraising challenge.  Together we can shine a light on some of the causes of the climate emergency while doing our bit to guard God's creation and protect our common home.  Your kind contributions will raise money to help tackle poverty caused by the climate crisis.

    On Thursday 21st October, we would like children to come into school wearing their own clothes, but one item of clothing must be GREEN!  

    In return, we are asking for a contribution of £1 and some non-perishable cans or packets of food which we can donate to the local food bank.  Whatever you do to Go Green for CAFOD, we thank you in advance for your great generosity. 

  • HARVEST TIME

    We are collecting non-perishable items for this year’s Harvest collection.  These will then be donated to our local food bank who will distribute it to those who require a helping hand within the local area.  The following items will be of great help:

    Tinned food

    Tinned or boxes of biscuits

    Packet soups

    Chocolate spread

    Breakfast and cereal bars

    Pasta ‘n Sauce pouches

    Rice and pasta

    Tea bags

    We would be grateful if you could pass these donations into school by Wednesday 20th October.

    Thank you

     

  • Wear Yellow for World Mental Health Day

    Tue 05 Oct 2021

    To show our support for World Mental Health Day, on Friday 8th October we would like to spread the joy by wearing yellow!

    Children may come into school wearing a yellow item along with their uniform in exchange for a £1 donation (or more if you wish). This could be anything from a yellow hair band, yellow socks or even a yellow scarf or hat - anything yellow!

    By wearing something yellow we will help spread the word that, whatever we are going through, we can talk to someone if we are struggling to cope.

    All money raised will go towards the YoungMinds charity.
