Our Caritas Ambassador Team is made up of ten Year Five pupils who each volunteered for this special mission. It is our role to promote social change within our school and local community. We have many special projects planned for this year, so keep checking back to see what we have been doing!
All year 6 pupils interviewed Father Dever to learn all about becoming a priest. Pupils asked Father Dever questions about his vocation and training and the kind of things he does on a daily basis and learned a great deal. Thank you Father Dever.
Kathryn Ansley came in to deliver a special assembly to KS2. She outlined the role of Caritas in the Diocese of Salford and how we can help to support. During the assembly, we introduced our new Caritas Ambassador team for 2019-2020 and our planned projects for the year.
Our Caritas Ambassadors led their first project of the year by collecting food for the Cornerstone Centre. Cornerstone do fabulous work to help people facing a wide range of social issues. We were overwhelmed by all of the donations we received and we went down the centre to drop the food off ourselves. Thank you to all who contributed!
Denis – We have made a big difference with our food donations. We are just getting started on our mission and I cannot wait to lead on other projects in school.
Kenzie – I enjoyed visiting the centre and I hope that our donations go a long way to help people in need.
Megan – I feel good about what we did because it means that these people will have something to eat. I hope that it makes them happy.
The month of October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary. Throughout October, the GIFT Team led a Rosary prayer group. Each day we said one decade of the Rosary with children throughout KS2. The daily prayer group was extremely well attended, with some children coming every single day. Thank you to all children who attended!
