“Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good spirit lead me on ground level.” – Psalm 143:10
On Tuesday 26th September 2023, we celebrated our school’s Mission Day. The theme this year was Charity, as we are supporting Nugent Care in gathering much needed donations to support those within our local community.
“Let all your things be done with charity.” – 1 Corinthians 16:14
Our whole school day was dedicated to exploring the ways we can contribute to the lives of others and make a difference in our school, city and wider world.
Each class had a different activity to immerse within contributing to our Gospel Value: Charity.
Foundation Stage: Solidarity – Create helping hands and talk about the ways we can help others.
Year 1: The Common Good – Create a class collage of ways we can help those in need.
Year 2: Promoting Peace – Research the wok of Nugent Care and design posters to promote our fundraising.
Year 3: Human Dignity – Write a class pledge of the ways we can care for our global neighbours.
Year 4: Preferential Option for the Poor – Collect and organise Nugent Care donations, support in the preparation of Fare Share & Pre-Loved Uniform.
Year 5: Participation – Watch CAFOD ‘The World We Want’ , create prayers to share the world YOU want.
Year 6: Subsidiarity – Lead a Whole School Collective Worship sharing the value of Charity.
What a truly memorable day, which enriched the lives of the children, allowing them to realise that we all have the ability to make a difference no matter how small.
Let us remember… ‘It is not how much we GIVE, but how much LOVE we put into giving’ – Mother Teresa
