The pupils have continues with their amazing support of charitable causes this term.
This year, the pupils put together 32 shoe boxes for the Samaritans Purse Christmas appeal. These shoe boxes go to children who don’t have much and give them joy during troubling times. A special thanks goes to Mrs Cullis and 9T who donated an amazing 12 shoe boxes!
Francis house day was a huge success with £133 raised by the pupils efforts of setting up their stalls and selling cakes, taking part in the chubby bunny challenge, how much does it weigh challenge, and the basketball challenge. Following in the footsteps of their house sain t, St Francis of Assisi, the Francis House pupils have decided to help take care of animals and donate the money raised to the RSPCA.
Finally, in the run up to Christmas, we decided to set up a reverse advent calendar, where pupils were encouraged to donate food items that can be given to those less fortunate than us. The generosity of out pupils has been astounding, with the donation boxes overflowing! The Trussel Trust and Alabare where extremely thankful for the efforts of everyone at St Joseph’s. Well done!
