St Mary’s supports Mosaic charity

On Friday 24th May, St Mary’s will be supporting ‘Bring £1.00 to Work / School day. Organised by Wessex FM, who have selected Mosaic this year as their chosen charity. (Please note this is not a dress down day)

Mosaic was created to fill the gap in the provision of bereavement services for children and young people across the county. They provide counselling for children and young people who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or loved one through any cause of death. They also offer support to families facing the death of a loved one.

As a school we been fortunate to have accessed help from Mosaic for our own children and families within the school. We also received staff training from Mosaic for our ELSA staff to enable them to support children appropriately.

Please see below link for more information on Mosaic. If you feel able to support this very worthwhile course, please send a £1.00 in with your child on Friday.

CAFOD Fast Day

Lent-19_logo-small_opt_squarestory_smallAs a school we are holding a fast day on Wednesday 3 April 2019. We are not asking you or your children to fast, but to think about a luxury or treat you regularly eat that you could forego for a day, or a week, or all of Lent. Any money you save in this way would be welcomed as a donation that we will send to CAFOD to support our neighbours in other parts of the world.

More information on the CAFOD website.
