Catholic Children's Society Assembly
Kimberly from the Catholic Children’s Society came into school to talk to us about the work that the charity does and how we can all help. She shared a story about a lady and her two children who lost her job and the whole family ended up homeless. Within the space of 24 hours, the charity was able to help find them a home and provide bedding and clothes.
The theme of this years’ Lenten Appeal is ‘Growing Together.’ Pupils will look at different actions they can take to work together and grow closer to God this Lent.
Each child will bring home a collection box to collect any spare change which they can then bring in to school and activity sheets for them to complete at home.
Mini Vinnies is a group of children who get together to help those in need within the school and local community. Our Mini Vinnies are made up of two children from each class from Year 1 to Year 6. We meet to discuss things we can do to help others and also to talk, share ideas and concerns, to have fun and support each other. Here are OLM's Mini Vinnies.
