At our school, we recognise the importance of following the call of Jesus to live lives with a commitment to the greater good. Through being committed to works of charity, we are developing in children their understanding of the responsibility that has been placed upon us to do what we can to show our support of and solidarity with all members of God’s family. Our commitment to the support of those less fortunate than ourselves leads us to support both local, national and international organisations and charities in their work with those in need throughout the course of the academic year. These include:
In Covid times, we have focused our fundraising close to home – supporting local charities such as Watford Foodbank and One Vision.
Like many of you, we have been appalled by the current plight of the Afghan people. We have teamed up with One Vision to support Afghan refugees. Please send nappies, baby milk powder, toiletries, boxer shorts/knickers and socks into school. Alternatively, please send money, which we will donate to CAFOD’s appeal fund.
During Advent, families collected for our reverse Advent Calendar.
