A visit from Sister Vincent

On Thursday morning Father David came to school to tell us all about his friends who live in Kenya and the work he has done there. He brought along Sister Vincent who lives in Kenya and helps the local people. We learnt so much about the work they both do to help people who are less fortunate than ourselves. We enjoyed hearing stories and looking at photographs of the hospital, families and work carried out by Sister Vincent.

We are hoping to make stronger links with the people in Kenya this year through Father David and Sister Vincent. We will be doing some fundraising projects to raise much needed money and collecting items of clothing for the villagers who live there. Look out for further information to follow.

Saving our Planet

Last week Year 2 read the story ‘The Trouble with Dragons’. We quickly realised that these dragons cause all sorts of problems!
