Our classes will keep in touch with and show care for the following community groups:

 

Nursery Marple Dale Nursing Home Year 3 Arbour Care Home
ReceptionBrabyns House Care Home Year 4 Our Local Shops
Year 1 Rushes Care Home Year 5 Marple Lodge Care Home

We will:

  • Send welcome/cheery cards on our return to school following Lockdown
  • Send Easter cards at the end of the Lent term
  • Send a written communication in the Pentecost term
  • Offer to sing at venues, if possible, once restrictions lift OR send a recorded song to each setting

 

We will also support CAFOD during, and beyond, Lent.

This academic year 2020-2021 we will be supporting CAFOD (Catholic Agency for Overseas Development) and the NHS (National Health Service).

Since 2012, we have matched each class with its own charity for the year.  Form Captains act as Charity Chiefs to enable classes to do something each term to support their charity.  We aim for this to be an ongoing project, allowing the children to earn small amounts periodically whilst also raising the profile of, and finding out about, the work of their allocated organisation.  We want the children to develop their understanding of the importance of considering the needs of others and how we can support people through prayer and information sharing, as well as raising money. We want our children to recognise that, in the words of St Mother Teresa of Calcutta, “It’s not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.”
