Charity - Faith in Action
Individual Pupil Charity Work
Here at St George's Catholic Primary school, the pupils are encouraged to share their own personal reasons for supporting charities.
Here are some of the charities our pupils have individually supported and fundraised for in the past fews years.
Catholic Children's Society
On Wednesday 27th February 2019 , our children shone brightly on stage as they performed for our Lenten Fundraising Concert 'Shine Your Light'. Each class performed either poetry or songs which were linked to the theme 'Shine Your Light'. The School Chaplaincy team worked extremely hard prior to and during the concerts.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your generous donations of £650 for the Catholic Children's Society, and a special thanks to Kimberley from CCS who attended our afternoon concert.
A very special day was had by all and now we are preparing for Lent.
Harrow Food Bank
On 3rd December, Peter came to visit our pupils at St. Georges to tell them about ways they could help support the local food banks this Advent. This Advent, we are all working hard to collect different foods for the local food banks to help make a difference to those in need.
These were presented at our KS2 Carol Service on 20th December 2019.
BBC Children in Need
Children from our School Council sold Pudsey merchandise during break times, children in Years 5 and 6 organised a bake sale, the school held a 'spotty' mufti day and there was a raffle to win a giant Pudsey Bear. A total of £1329.50 was raised.
Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal
Members of our School Council gave up their break times to sell poppies and other merchandise for the Royal British Legion. A total of £196.65 was raised.
