Would you like to fill a shoebox?

Our Mini Vinnies have been encouraging everyone to fill a shoebox for families living in poverty in Eastern Europe.

They have collected hats, toys and other items and have been selling them for 20p on the yard after school, to help with the cost of filling a shoebox.

If you can help, please bring your wrapped, packed and sealed shoebox into school with  two £1 coins attached by Monday 29th October, the first week back after half term.

Thank you

 

Harvest Assembly

Year 5 presented a lovely assembly about Harvest. The children thought about how lucky they are to have such a wide variety of different foods to choose from and how important it is to thank God for his love. They told the story of the rich man and Lazarus and explained that we must share what we have with people in need. All the food donated by year 5 will be delivered to Joe’s place in Gateshead and used to provide meals for the homeless.

 

Mini Vinnies Celebration

This week in school we held a beautiful Mini Vinnies commissioning ceremony led by Mr Michael Willcock. The children were presented with certificates and badges to recognise their commitment to helping others both locally and around the world. This ceremony was a wonderful way to welcome our new Mini Vinnies from Year 4 and 5.
