RE Catholic Ambassadors

As part of Lenten promises, we have been thinking about how we can help our local community. Over the last week, the GIFTED team have volunteered to give their time to work with the elderly in our local area. On Friday 29th March, the children had the opportunity to visit St. Raphael’s Community Centre accompanied by Miss Wall and Mrs Murphy. As part of this visit, they were able to talk with the adults about what school was like then compared to now. The children really enjoyed having discussions and were interested in finding out about the people in our community. As the afternoon went on, the children became more confident and one of the pupils even taught some Spanish to everyone! Afterwards, the children helped to serve lunch with a smile and do the washing up. Miss Wall and Mrs Murphy are extremely proud of how the GIFTED team have developed into their roles. It was a fantastic afternoon for all and the children have been invited to go back again because of their impeccable conduct. On Wednesday 3rd April, the GIFTED team also had a coffee and cake morning for the elderly in the local community. Thank you to the Year 5 children for their amazing performance of the Easter Story. Those who could make it enjoyed the morning and thanked the children for inviting them.
