Lent is the season of preparation for Easter. It is a time to reflect on how we are living as followers of Jesus. It gives us the opportunity to come closer to God and our neighbour.
This Lent we are encouraging the children to take the Give It Up challenge. In assembly this week, the children were introduced to Rabuil and his family, living in Bangladesh and were asked if they would help to raise money during Lent to support such families in need.
Every child has been given a small envelope to collect the money they save by either giving things up or doing something extra this Lent.
At the end of this half term, the envelopes will be collected in and the money will be donated to CAFOD to help the poorest communities around the world.
