On Thursday 28th January during this morning’s online Collective Worship and in school with Key Worker children everyone took part the CAFOD’s Water of Life Assembly!
A big thank you to everyone for their Advent contributions CAFOD sent us a lovely letter and recognition for the £221.72 we raised!
Well done everyone!
On Friday 6th March, we celebrated World Book Day at St. Chad’s. As part of our alms-giving for Lent, the children and staff gave a donation to Father Hudson’s Good Shepherd Appeal, in exchange for being able to come to school dressed as their favourite book character.
Our celebration of reading began at our usual Friday morning praise assembly. Some of the teachers acted out the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, the children and parents seemed to enjoy their performance!
After assembly the children completed World Book Day related activities in their classrooms. They also had to listen out for bells throughout the day, which was a signal for them to ‘DEAR’ (drop everything and read).
At the end of the day the children were all given their World Book Day vouchers, which we hope they will enjoy spending on a new book.
Thank you to all those who joined us for our Christmas Coffee Morning on Friday 13th December. Each class performed a Christmas song and poem before singing a traditional Christmas Carol, which helped to remind us all about the true meaning of Christmas.
The hall was full of parents and grandparents watching their children perform and enjoying a hot drink and a mince pie. It was a lovely morning and helped get everyone in the festive spirit.
All donations for the refreshments and the raffle ticket sales will go to Childline.
On Tuesday 3rd December we had a visit from Childline. The children worked with a volunteer from Childline, they talked about different issues that children face and what to do if they needed any help or advice. The children all learnt the ‘Childline Wiggle’ to help them remember the Childline phone number 0800 11 11.
We will donating the money raised at the Reception, Y1 and Y2 Nativity play to Childline this year.
Volunteers from the Black Country Food Bank came and collected all the donations from our Harvest. They were extremely pleased with the amount of food donated. They will let us know how many kilograms we collected when it is weighed. They took this back to their base in Brierley Hill where it will be distributed to families in need.
