We raised £150.02 at our Harvest Celebration yesterday.
This money will be sent to Mission Together
Mission Together is the Catholic Church’s official children’s charity for overseas mission. It is the children’s branch of Missio.
Previously known as Holy Childhood, Mission Together has been working in Catholic schools and parishes worldwide since 1843, encouraging children to pray, fundraise and become missionaries themselves – children helping children.
Pupils from Classes 1,2 and 3 enjoyed a busy, action packed Outdoor Classroom Day today.
Outdoor Classroom Day is a global campaign to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play. On the day, thousands of schools around the world take lessons outdoors and prioritise playtime. In 2017, over 2.3 million children worldwide took part, more than 580,000 of those were in the UK and Ireland.
Outdoor learning improves children’s health, engages them with learning and leads to a greater connection with nature. Play not only teaches critical life skills such as resilience, teamwork and creativity, but is central to children’s enjoyment of childhood.
Our children worked with staff, parents and governors to take part in a range of exciting outdoor activities.
