Thank you for all the wonderful donations for the Swanage Foodbank as part of our Advent Las Posadas. Photos of the Holy Family in your homes are here.
We will be celebrating Las Posadas again as part of our Advent preparations. The ‘Holy Family’ were brought to our class liturgies by our chaplains and blessed, ready to start their journey visiting your homes. The children will take turns to take Mary, Joseph and the donkey home during Advent to give them a home for the night.
Keep your eyes on our website to see the other activities we took part in during COP26!
Children from Year 6 attended the Armistice Day service held at Swanage War Memorial, laying crosses and poppies to remember and honour those of our community who have lost their lives in conflict. The remainder of the school observed two minutes silence in the school playground.
Artworks from our autumn art competition are on view at Durlston in the Bellevedere Room until Friday 26 November.
Thank you to all who entered the art competition. There were some amazing entries! Congratulations to the winners.
Congratulations to all those who completed last summer’s reading challenge at the library. We were delighted that so many pupils took the opportunity to take part this year – Well done.
Thank you to everyone who donated items to help fill the Rotary shoeboxes again this year. These are just a few of the bags of goodies that we were able to send off on the last day of half term – your compassion and generosity is very much appreciated and will help to ensure that people who do not have the same opportunities as us will be able to enjoy some treats this Christmas.
Many thanks for all the generous contributions that were sent in for our Go Green for Harvest campaign. We have a wonderful selection of food and toiletries to take to the Swanage Foodbank – the School Chaplains delivered it to the Foodbank. We also raised £168.83 for the CAFOD Harvest Appeal. Thank you, as always, for your kindness and generosity.
