At St Francis, we strongly believe that our children should think about their world, enlarge their world and change their world. This outward focus is a crucial part of helping our children to grow up to be well-rounded, empathetic, compassionate and caring adults.
It is the best shown in the number of regular fundraising events we hold throughout the year, with the children even taking the lead to organise and run their own year groups mini enterprise events for causes close to their hearts, with just a little help from their teachers!
Please see below overview of our fundraising
Tuesday 2nd Nov
During the assembly, the children heard about the devastating effects of deforestation on the Amazon rainforest. We will therefore be continuing our Harvest fundraising by ‘Going green’ with a Green dress up day to raise funds for those living in the rainforest desperately trying to keep crops, nature and animals safe. Our green dress up day will be on Tuesday 2nd November, suggested donation £1.
Each year we welcomed a representative from CAFOD.
