Our Christian vision and values help us to make positive choices about the way we live and behave. We are inspired by Jesus to be courageous advocates for change in our community.
Reverse Advent Calendar
In December 2018, two brothers at our school were inspired to start a reverse Advent calendar. They wrote a letter which was sent out to all families, asking the rest of the school to support them in collecting items to be given to support homeless people. By the end of term, they had collected six large boxes of clothing, tins and other long-life food items which were given to Sanctuary, a local charity.
Through the family of one our teachers we have been able to learn about how a local church sponsors a church in Kenya to help build nursery schools for local children. As a result of the sponsorship programme, 400 children in the Maasi region are now receiving teaching in basic subjects, enabling them to go on to state education and thereby improving the quality of their life and the lives of their families. We have written to some of the children at the schools and one of the local church members attends our Collective Worship regularly to update us on the progess being made.
