The Food Bank has been so busy this week they’ve run out of all desserts – tinned fruit, custard, milk puddings, instant puddings. They’ve also no meat products left, including Frey Bentos pies, cold meats and tins of minced beef, stew, chilli con carne, chicken in sauce etc. Packets of rice, and tinned vegetables are also low in stock. The luxuries of sweets and chocolates have been used up, which aren’t strictly necessary but lift the clients’ hearts a bit at this difficult time.

Gifts can be left in the Food Bank containers in the following locations

  • Co-op
  • Budgens
  • Costcutters
  • Spa (Arkwrights)
  • at the Food Bank (the Food Bank which is open from 12-2 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the Salvation Army Lower Hall in King’s Road East)
  • in the porch just inside the All Saints building.

All contributions will be really appreciated.

Stations of the Cross

This activity is based on a version of the Via Crucis used by Pope John Paul II at the Colosseum in Rome; it can be used to engage children in the Passion story. Working through each station, allow time for the children to reflect on each state of the story and complete the activity. Say the prayer together before moving to the next station.

Green Team Litter Pick

Members of the Green Team invited volunteers from their class to a litter pick around the area outside the school grounds. Despite extremely muddy conditions, they collected a considerable amount of litter along with helpers from Litter-Free Purbeck.

Mass with Bishop Mark

A big thank you to everyone who came to Mass yesterday and sang for Bishop Mark – the children sang the new year 6 song – ‘It starts with just one feeling’ – Bishop Mark really enjoyed the song and was especially impressed with its links to Laudato Si.

Year 1 visit Swanage Brickworks

Year 1 had a brilliant trip to Swanage Brickworks as part of our science topic, Everyday Materials. We saw the quarry where the clay is dug, watched it being pounded and mixed with water, then saw how each brick is made by hand. Then we followed the bricks through the drying process and felt the heat outside the kilns. It was a fascinating and enjoyable morning; we even knew some people who worked at the brickworks!
