Important Information


Monday 27th February - Friday 31st March 2023


This Lent, the Lighthouse Group invite you to join them in their acts of charitable giving as part of this special season. Each Friday during Lent, we will perform an act of kindness or raise money for a charity that is close to our heart. We know how generous the families of our school are and we know we can make a difference to the lives of others who are less fortunate than us.

Please make a note of the dates and the events happening so that your children can take part.

Friday 17th March: Comic Relief 'Wear Something Funny' Day

To mark Comic Relief Day on Friday 17th March, we are inviting the children to 'wear something funny' for the day. We want you to be as imaginative and comical as you want but try to make us smile and giggle on the day - it is for a good cause after all!


On this day, we invite you to make a contribution towards the charity in return for wearing your own clothes. Remember, every penny really does make a difference so we know, whatever you can afford will be greatly appreciated by this charity.


Friday 24th March: Father Hudson's Good Shepherd Appeal

Every year, we give out the boxes for the Good Shepherd Appeal for Father Hudson's and this year is no different. In addition to the boxes, we invite all the children to wear their own clothes in return for making a contribution towards the charity. This charity does amazing work within our region and every penny makes a huge difference to those people they support.


Friday 31st March: Lighthouse Group Charitable Appeal

The Our Common Home Group are keen to make the quiet area in the playground an area of peace, tranquility and calm and they would love to be able to plant some more plants to make the area more appealing. On the final Friday of half term, they would be really grateful for any contributions that you could make to help them raise money for more plants for the quiet area. In return for your contributions, the children will be able to wear their own clothes as a BIG thank you for your support.
