Today, school council have looked at raising money for Francis House. We will be selling creme eggs at breaktime. They will be £1 each .

Easter Chick Appeal

Every year, thousands of little woolly chicks flock into Francis House, knitted by crafty supporters from across the world.

The chicks are then filled with a donated chocolate egg each and sold in schools, stores and businesses all over Greater Manchester to raise funds for the hospice.

Hundreds of knitters put their needles to work for Easter 2018, producing more than 40,000 chicks between them and helping the campaign to raise over £50,000!

Welcome back we hope you have had an amazing half term full of celebration and cheer. This week, the school council have been looking at recycling. This was a direct response from our milk, for KS1,  which is now supplied in small plastic containers. The school council, especially year 6, have been looking at the effects of plastic pollution in our oceans and the effect it has on our environment and decided they wanted to make a difference. So this week they have launched a campaign on recycling. The started off with an assembly and all week have been working hard to produce a display for the foyer about how we can look after God's wonderful world.
