Blue Cross Donation - September 2021
During last summer three pupils in Class 6, Maja M, Weronika K and Tatiana D raised £136 for the Blue Cross Appeal by running a Craft Shop every break time and lunchtime. They made bookmarks and other toys to sell to their classmates. They recently handed over the money to the staff at the Blue Cross Shop in Trowbridge.
Well done girls for all your hard work.
Lemonade Stand for CAFOD - July 2021
We were absolutely thrilled with the response we had from the children in EYFS at the end of last academic year to organise and create their very own 'Lemonade Stand'. The EYFS cohort of children were inspired by one of their friends who decided 'they wanted to do more' for children without access to clean water. The children became leaders and created their own 'Lemonade Stand Project' which was great fun and raised £164. 73. A huge well done to you all, we can't wait to see what you achieve in Year 1! Thank you very much to the EYFS (now Year 1) parents who supported us and for the very generous donations. All the money donated will be forwarded to CAFOD Walk for Water campaign.

SPONSORED WALK AND JUST GIVING FOR BAILEY-MAY RAISES £3618.11 FOR BRISTOL CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL PLAY THERAPY.
At St John's Catholic Primary School, our learning is underpinned by Catholic Social Teaching. It is embedded in everthing we do and the main premise is to enable children to make a difference and take action. Many of the fundraising activities that go on throughout the year are led by the children themselves and they take great pride in being able to support those in need.
Earlier on this year, Bailey in Year 6 was diagnosed with a benign brain tumour which was removed during surgery. Bailey's treatment and recovery was at Bristol Children's Hospital and the play therapy she experienced during rehabilitation was invaluble.
Upon returning to school in September, Bailey and her friends were very keen to carry out a fundraiser to raise money for the charity responsible for the play therapy. They decided to organise a sponsored run which took place in October. The sponsored run involved the whole school and this, along with the Just Giving page set up by Bailey's family, raised an incredible £3618.11.
The money raised will be presented in the new year to the charity so watch this space for updates.
