photographs of our dancing.
Our first summer charity event was a danceathon.
Each class danced for half an hour in the hall.
Money raised from donations will be presented to the parish SVP (Saint Vincent de Paul) group.
Thanks to everyone for taking part and special thanks to Miss Thompson for organising everything for us.
We were visited by a CAFOD representative, Moira, who showed us the difficulty for babies in one of the poorest countries in the world. We are going to take part in a sponsored walk to raise money for CAFOD and help feed babies in Sierra Leone.
Our MiniVinnies continued to help collect food for the food bank.
During Advent they ran a book staff at playtimes and raised £150.00 which was presented by Mrs Brookes to the SVP (via Fr Martin) at our Christmas Carol Service.
Well done MiniVinnies!
Father Martin asked us to support the Saint Vincent de Paul (SVP) charity that works in our parish. We wore bright socks and each brought in tins/packets of food to be distributed to local families struggling to have enough to eat. In these especially challenging times, the generosity of our families was incredible.
Working alongside other schools and parishes, we hope to continue collecting food over the winter months and beyond. Please send in any donations with your child.
We are in the process of setting up a junior version of the SVP. Once Covid restrictions are lifted we will begin to meet.
While there are still restrictions and obstacles because of Covid 19, we have found new ways of living out our Mission in school and as part of the wider community...
We had a "socially distanced" coffee and cake morning to support Macmillan nurses, something we have done in various ways over the last few years.
Although we cannot gather in church as a whole school, classes are able to celebrate Mass in smaller groups thanks to Father Martin and his team of stewards who make our church Covid secure. A huge amount of work has gone into making St Teresa's church safe for the parish and school to use, side by side. Thanks to Father Martin who has supported us throughout the virus outbreak. We celebrated St Teresa's feast, harvest and are looking forward to new ways to worship during Advent.
