Wear it Red

On Wednesday the 22nd of November  Aid to the Church in need organised a day to wear red to raise awareness of the persecution which is experienced by thousands of people around the world for simply wanting to practice a faith. It was great to see so many of our pupils support the cause and show their solidarity for those who are being persecuted for their faith. Galatians 3:28 “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” Our pupils clearly demonstrated this teaching by wearing it red. A huge thank you for your generosity as we were able to raise over £900.

A.R.C Food Bank

A huge thank you to the generosity of pupils in year 7 and 8, they have collected over 144 Kilos of food for our local food bank and they have helped to reduce the shortages of items of food which families over the summer will be particularly grateful for. In addition the support in vouchers for shoes will help many to buy school shoes for their children for the new school year. Also I would like to thank our year 12 pupils who have organised for this to take place and donated the items on behalf of the school. It is truly great to witness our pupils living out the Gospel teaching ‘Do to others as you would have them do to you.’ Lk 6:31.
