March Values Newsletter
We were fortunate this month to have two visiting speakers in our whole school worship – Rev D. Attwell from Trinity Methodist Church who led our Ash Wednesday worship and Rev G. Scott from St Andrew’s who spoke about Lent and our value of charity using the story of the widow’s mite.
As a school we are trying our own Lent Challenge and we hope you will support your child/children by encouraging them to complete acts of kindness with the themes of friendship, gratitude, giving, new friends, doing the right thing, care for the environment and school community. Children can have their sheet of ideas signed and dated by an adult and will be rewarded for completed sections or even all 40 challenges completed.
What are you giving up? Or are you doing something extra at this special time of year?
Bradley (Year 8), Phoebe (Year 7), Victoria (Year 6) and Charlie (Year 5) received certificates for living the school values. Mr Grainger and Bradley were the staff and pupil trophy winners.
“Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done.” Proverbs 19:17
- Charity is giving to others
- Charity is showing love to all
- Charity is caring about our community and our world
Perhaps you could try to:
- Show someone you care by spending time with them
- Help a charity by giving (things to a charity shop, raising money, making cakes)
- Be a good citizen of your class, the school, your home and the wider world
