As part of our mission last week we were challenged to play our part in tackling injustice. To support the injustice of food poverty last Friday, we gave in a selection of food for the food bank. On Monday morning it was all collected. They sent us this in response:
‘A huge thank you to everyone who donated to the Jubilee Foodbank last week – your support is much appreciated, particularly at this difficult time. The number of people using our service remains extremely high, as the pandemic continues. Without both food and monetary donations, the Foodbank would not be able to provide support. Your donations will be sorted on Thursday, and put onto the shelves, ready to be made into food parcels. Donations such as yours enables us to ensure that every person who needs a food parcel, gets one.‘
When we all returned to school on March 8th Rosewood Manor Care Home sent us letters wishing us a fantastic first week back at school. In return, we sent them multiple letters about what we enjoyed about our first week back. They were so pleased and have displayed them in their entrance.
On Friday 19th (St Joseph’s Day) we were asked to wear red clothes symbolising Saint Joseph. We also attended Mass celebrated by Bishop Patrick. We focus on Saint Joseph because he looked after Mary and Jesus. We brought in biscuits or bread to symbolise the Sicilian altar.
In the afternoon we walked a few laps around the field to raise money for CAFOD who are supporting people who don’t have access to clean water. Some people were sponsored by family or friends to raise extra money for the CAFOD project.
