Lent 2022

Human  Dignity and Preferential Option for the Poor

This Lent Key Stage 2 have decided to fundraise for the Cardinal Hume Centre in London. They heard from Stephen, the Schools' link, who told us all about their mission and presented some interesting facts about homelessness and the young. Children have been given the freedom to choose exciting ways in which to fundraise this lent, asking family members to sponsor them for these activities.

Red Kites have chosen an outdoor camp activity day, in keeping with our Outdoor learning theme. They hope to have a competition to erect a tent, light fires and cook their lunch on the fire!

Squirrels have chosen a 'sleep out/sleep over' in school one Friday evening and a pyjama day.

Hedgehogs are holding a Fun Keep Fit morning.

The Cardinal Hume Centre supports families and young people from the ages of 16-25, facing poverty and homelessness by helping them to thrive.

They had a visit from Andy, the HCPT Schools' Link Advisor.
