Pupil-led Building the Kingdom projects
EARTHQUAKE SUPPORT: In February 2023, Year 5 were saddened by the news of the devastating earthquakes affecting Turkey and Syria. They decided to sew some items, which they could sell, in order to raise money. They raised £190. The money has been donated to CAFOD, who are currently using donations to provide shelter, food, water and winter kits to survivors. Thank you to Year 3 and 4, who donated and bought the items. We have many very generous and thoughtful children in our school .
SEA SAVERS: In Autumn 2022, a group of Year 4 children were concerned about plastic pollution in the oceans, and started to research how we could help. They planned, organised and led a 'Wear Something Blue' day and bake sale in school, raising £278.65 for the Marine Conservation Society. They were then visited by a Marine Biologist, Courtney French, who talked to them about the difference that their money would make and the work that is being done to protect our seas.
Food Bank Appeal - June 2022: Our amazing Year 4s launched an appeal for the Newcastle Foodbank to help children and families over the Summer Holidays. This resulted in lots of donations to support local people over the Summer break, which were donated to The Alice Pantry. Well done girls!
