Friday Oct 14th is a mufti day for Cafod, Brighten up this Harvest where all the children are being encouraged to wear as many colours as they can in one outfit.
During this Year of Mercy, Pope Francis has asked us to rediscover the corporal works of mercy, one of which is to feed the hungry. Families in Bolivia face many challenges in growing enough food. It is the poorest country in South America and many Bolivians, especially children, are malnourished. In one remote area, on a high plain called the Altiplano, families have to deal with poor quality soil. The climate is changing and the weather is unpredictable. Sometimes devastating hailstorms or heavy frosts destroy crops. At other times there is not enough rain. These conditions make it incredibly tough to grow food, meaning many families go hungry. That’s why we are asking you to Brighten Up this Harvest – to help build a brighter world and to put into action the corporal work of mercy: feed the hungry. Your fundraising will support communities like Ruben’s in Bolivia to grow enough food for themselves, by providing seeds and training in farming methods and by teaching people how to build greenhouses. So use the bright colours and vibrancy of Bolivia to organise your own bright fundraiser on or around Harvest Fast Day
The Opera was telling the tale of the first dog in space. Great experience for the children to see a different way of seeing and hearing a story to be told.
This week has been Anti-Bullying Week.
We started the week with Blue Monday - Everybody was encouraged to wear something blue. All of the classes and years have been discussing bullying to raise awareness and support Anti-Bullying and to also support Mental Health & Well Being.
Year Six created a video and entered a competition for which they have received a certificate for their contribution. The School Council held a badge making competition, the winners were announced during Friday's Assembly.
