Special days and charity work

 

This year, the School Council has chosen Book Aid as our school charity. 

 

 

In the words of Book Aid...

"We see the power of books every day.

It’s a new library opening in a school that’s never had one. It’s a midwife using the latest medical textbook to save a baby’s life. It’s a family escaping into a story after being forced to flee their home.

It’s a path to a more equal future.

A single book can transform dozens of lives – offering joy, inspiration and hope. It can be taken anywhere, without Wi-Fi or a charger. Wherever you are in the world, a book can fire you up to work for a better tomorrow.

Books give people power – so we work every day to create a world where everyone has access to books."

 

Book Aid works with 185 partners around the world – from national library services to community groups that run mobile libraries for refugees. They say which books will help people build a more equal future, and they do everything in our power to provide the books they need.

World Day of Prayer 2024

 

On 1 March 2024, many churches around the UK held a World Day of Prayer Service. This year’s theme is “I beg you, bear with one another in love”World Day of Prayer is an international, inter-church organisation, led by women, which enables us to hear the thoughts of those women from all parts of the world: their hopes, concerns, and prayers.

This year the Christian Women of Palestine are calling us to connect with the land from where Jesus came; where he was born, ministered and died – and from where our faith began and is rooted.

World Day of Prayer England, Wales & Northern Ireland National Committee member Amanda Allchorn said: “Despite living in an area of the world where there is ongoing conflict and the future is uncertain, the women of Palestine are sharing with love a reminder that they are there, and they want to give hope to everyone. The theme ‘bear with one another in love’ seems very appropriate for these women who will not give up witnessing the love of Jesus Christ.”

The Palestinian Christian women who wrote this worship service invite us to pray for peace, justice and freedom of religion and movement, asking us to pray for women, refugees, the sick, dying and grieving.

The children spent time throughout the day thinking about the them for this year and how they can 'bear with one another in love'.  Some also spent time thinking about important things more personal to them, for example, their families and friends as well as school.

Maple Class (Year 2)

 

Maple Class thought hard about the theme of World Prayer Day and wrote prayers asking for God's help and support in giving them strength and courage to help those in need.

 

Prayers by Kip, Timi and Erin.

 

 

Willow Class (Year 3)

 

Willow Class spent time reflecting on their school life and issues around them.  The children wrote prayers reflecting their thanks for our amazing school and asking God to keep us all safe and healthy.

 

Prayers by Charlie H, Erin and Natalia.

 

Year 5

 

The World Day of Prayer holds a special place in our hearts at the school. This year, our Year 5 children embraced the occasion by crafting their own heartfelt prayers, each as unique as the child who wrote it. With creativity and compassion, they illustrated their prayers on leaves, which together will form a vibrant prayer tree—a symbol of unity and hope. Some prayers reflected the theme of The World Day of Prayer, while others were dedicated to friends, families, and personal aspirations. Through this beautiful gesture, our children showed that prayer knows no bounds and that kindness flourishes in their young hearts.
