Charity & Worship Committees

At the start of the Autumn term, children were appointed to the School Worship Committee and the Charity Committee. These teams are led by pupils from Year 5CL. The remit of the committees is to help others understand how to move closer to God, make a difference to the world, both locally and beyond; to develop the spiritual life of the school and to be committed to serving God.

Spring Term 2022

Father Hudson's Care

Good Shepherd Appeal

Traditionally, each Lent school children all over the Archdiocese raise money for Father Hudson’s Care. It is one of the oldest appeals dating back to when children would collect coins during the early days of the charity and is now one of their biggest and most vital fundraising campaigns.

Autumn Term 2021

The Charity that we are supporting this Autumn term 2021 is CARITAS as voted for by the children.

Its member organisations link together in a confederation to serve the world’s poor, vulnerable, dispossessed and marginalized. Caritas is inspired by Scripture, Catholic Social Teaching and by the experiences and hopes of people who are disadvantaged and living in poverty.

They work with people of all faiths and those who have none.
