WOW!  Thank you so much for your donations to CAFOD's World Gifts Appeal December 2020 - we raised £300 which means we can  buy a Medical Outreach Team; 
This life-saving, compassionate charity gift can help a team of medical professionals bring essential healthcare services to the remotest communities. They can also share their knowledge and skills with local people by running workshops and public campaigns on vital health issues.
We raised a whopping £201.43 for our Brighten up for Harvest day in school 2020!
 
Thank you so much everyone!!
Thank you - we raised an amazing £93 during our CAFOD coffee and cake events for the World Gifts appeal!!
 
The spiritual council decided to purchase;

Water for a family

This life-saving charity gift provides families with a supply of clean, safe water for drinking and cooking. Using a water pump also means families can wash in clean water, keeping everyone safe from infection.

 

AND

Water on wheels

A bike is the perfect way to get to some of the hardest-to-reach, rural areas. In fact, a bicycle is just the ticket when it comes to making sure families in the remotest communities have the help they need – including access to clean, safe water.

Can you be a Zero Hero like us????  CAFOD's latest campaign to highlight the importance of zero emissions has inspired us all to think about how we can help and be a Zero Hero!!!  Mrs Simpson came in to give an assembly to the school about it and has visited every class for a workshop on the subject....
Here are our EYFS children looking for zeros and for some examples of bad emissions and ways we are already helping!
Look at all the zeros we found around EYFS!!!
We investigated our school grounds to find good things we are already doing to help reduce emissions....and things that are bad for our climate...
CAFOD Lent 2019 - Give it up!
 
Our Spiritual council decided to place the fishing net (kindly donated to us from a fisherman on from Holy Island) outside in the prayer garden with all of our lenten promises attached.
 
It looks fantastic and will help us all to remember them!
 
Our Mini Vinnies held a 'coffee and cake' afternoon and raised a superb £128.73 for CAFOD!!  Well done & thank you everyone.
 
We hope to get to £167 once we get everyones CAFOD boxes back in so we can buy a pond that will help a family breed their own fish.
 
 
We raised an amazing £165 for CAFOD World gifts this year and the children decided to buy; a marvelous moo cow, 3 mosquito nets and a happy queen bee!
Our pilgrimage for refugees planned and led by Class 3 along with help form Mrs Simpson from CAFOD was a truly moving experience for everyone who joined us.
CAFOD LENT 2017
Mrs Simpson led our CAFOD assembly 'Turn little fish in to big fish'.  We all brought in a coin to decorate the fish scales!
Spiritual Councillors wanted to help the people of East Africa as millions face starvation.  Families in school were already donating to CAFOD's Lent appeal so the Spiritual Council decided to ask the children if they could use some of this money to this particular crisis as it's needed now. We held a special assembly to tell all the children about what is happening in East Africa.
During Advent 2017 we raised £66 which meant we could buy a 'pig that provides'!!
We took each class power to be sun to Holy Island and joined lots of others who had walked across the causeway to show support for CAFOD's Power to Be campaign. 
 
In St Aidan's church we brought our suns forward and placed them in front of the altar.
 
Every child in school had written on their own ray of sunshine how they would help to bring about change.
