Our Easter Garden Designs

 

This Lent, every pound you donate to CAFOD will be matched by the UK government, in a scheme known as  ‘UK Aid Match’. This scheme allows the UK public to have a say in the way that some of the government’s international aid budget is spent. The UK government will match, pound for pound, public donations to charities which tackle poverty in developing countries, therefore doubling the impact of your donations. This limited opportunity means that we are supporting the charities efforts to help even more people to escape poverty and transform their lives.

 

Last year our ‘Alms for Palms’ Lenten fund raising activity raised a fantastic £150 for CAFOD, which will be worth £300 as a result of the UK Aid Match. A huge thank you to all children and parents for your support.

Our Lady Queen Of All Creation

As a Catholic School we enjoy working closely with Fr Kim, Parish Priest of Our Lady Queen Of All Creation, Adeyfield.  The Junior classes all visit the church for Adoration once every half term as well as Year 4 to 6 preparing and celebrating a class mass every term.  The Infant classes and Foundation Stage make regular visits to the Church as they begin to learn more about our faith.

Fr Derek regularly celebrates mass with us in school and at church for Holy Days of Obligation and at the beginning of each new term.

At St Albert the Great School we are proud of our Community Links both locally and internationally.  As a Catholic School we also raise money for different causes throughout the year with events organised by both the staff and children.

Loreto School, Sealdah

Loreto Day School, Sealdah is in the city of Calcutta, India.  It has 500 students who are all girls aged from 4 to 16.  They study Science, Maths, English and History just like us.  However, on the roof of Loreto Day School, there is another school and these girls are know as the ‘Rainbow Children’.  At night, Loreto school is very busy, the chairs and tables are moved to the side and the ‘Rainbow Children’ all sit together to have dinner.  After dinner they go to sleep in the school.

On their day off, many of the girls from Loreto Day School travel to the countryside.  These girls then become teachers as they help those children whose parents can’t afford to send them to school.  Some of these ‘teachers’ are as young as 9 years old.

At St Albert the Great School we are very proud to support this school by raising money at various times throughout the year.
