"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy." ~ Proverbs 31: 8-9
Jesus taught us to stand against injustice and be an ally and a friend to those in need. We provide opportunities for children to show how they can make a difference. We encourage children to donate their time to local causes and there are countless opportunities throughout the year for our children to arrange events and raise money for charities across many faiths.
Jesus said to us : Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and Love your neighbour as yourself.’ ~ Matthew 22.36. We are driven by this great commandment to love God and our neighbours as ourselves.
Here are just a few charities and organisations that we have raised money for as a school family:
- Sindhi Primary School, Nepal
- Project Zulu, Kwa-Zulu Natal
- Christian Aid
- St Paul's Church, Bristol
- Westbury on Trym Community
- Hazelbrooke Care Home
- Sewa UK
- Tzedek UK
- Children in Need
- Red Nose Day
How are our children being Courageous Advocates for God?
