 Winter Update

It has been a busy time here at school and we have lots of good news to share.

 

At the beginning of November, we shared together, a time to reflect as we prepared for our day of Remembrance. Children worked hard to create a display and pieces of poetry about the event and why we remember it. Students sold and wore poppies and money was raised for the British Legion.

 

 

 

During November, Year 7’s worked on the First Give Project in RE lessons.

Through the RE Department, Year 7 completed the 'First Give' project hoping to raise social awareness about a variety of local charities. To this end, Year 7 (and their RE teachers) worked really hard to raise money for their charities, by selling baked goods, pot plants, running competitions etc. Their willingness to help others through their own actions, has been a pleasure to see. Soon, some of our Year 7s will be taking part in a competition to showcase their efforts -more on this next month!

Also in November, some staff took part in MOVEMBER. ‘Movember’ fundraisers are a global community making a difference in mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. One member of staff grew a moustache to raise money to for the charity which focus’ on health issues relating specifically to men. Cakes were made and sold and all money was given directly to the charity. Thank you!

The ‘Shoebox Appeal’ also took place and over 50 boxes were filled and given to The Samaritans to be distributed to those in need in other countries. An amazing effort by students and staff – well done!

 

We were also pleased to welcome members of the ‘Compassion’ team, who led an assembly with every year group.This is a charity which encourages others to sponsor those less fortunate in places around the globe who are in need of support and care. The team, introduced us to the five children we are sponsoring in Haiiti and inspired us to think creatively about fund-raising. The school will be undertaking various, student-led events and activities throughout the year to raise money for the newest members of our ‘Trinity Family’. The students really enjoyed hearing about what they could do to help.

December as always, has been our busiest month of the year. The sixth form led our annual Foodbank collection – many items were collected and distributed into our local community. Well done everyone and thanks to the students who oversaw this valuable work.

 

A toy collection, run by Thorne Rural Lions Club, took place also with 56 toys being bought by students and staff to be gifted to children. This is such a wonderful opportunity to bless others, at time of year when some have so much and others have little. Thank you to all for your kindness. 

 

 

  

December, saw our annual ‘Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day, a fun and special event which the children and staff always enjoy. Children wore Christmas jumpers and cakes were sold to raise money for the charity. Members of the catering team, staff and students all kindly contributed –

 A grand total of £ 731 was raised for Save the Children - Thank you to one and all!

 

 

 

In the next few months, we will be taking part in Red Nose Day- as well as continuing our work with Compassion and don’t forget Year 7 have a special event coming up with First Give – an update of that next time!

Take care everyone and bye for now.
