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.
