The start of a new academic year has opened the door for more members of KS2 to join the chaplaincy team. Children wrote letters outlining their desire to join and we are now proud to have 20 children serving in our school chaplaincy team.
Mrs Towers and Miss Gregory meet with the team weekly to discuss fundraising ideas, ways to lead collective worship across the school and achieving their 'Leaders in Faith' awards. In November they were officially commissioned into their role, along with other chaplains from other schools in the diocese with a special service at Clifton Cathedral.
During Lent we are raising money for CAFOD. Our first fundraiser was to make a 'Rainbow Fish' by donating copper and silver coins. Over two days all children in the school had the opportunity to lay their donations down to represent scales of a fish. Some volunteers in Year 6 will help tally up the total amount raised. Thank you to all in our community who donated to the 'Rainbow Fish' fundraiser.
