Charities we support

As part of our commitment towards guiding our children to living fulfilling lives rooted in the value of love for one another, we are passionate about the charities we support across school.

Each class has its own charity to learn about.  Through learning about the charity and the causes they support, our children learn about concepts such as injustice, inequality, service and courage.

Our youngest children learn about national charity events as these are the ones that they have probably heard about most and will relate to more easily.  Their interest will be developed when they see these charity events on their TVs and know that they have done something to contribute.

Our older children learn about local charities: canals and the Blackburn Foodbank.  They see how through their own service and sacrifices that they can make a difference to people they might not know, but who live close by.

Our oldest children learn about international charities as they understand more about what it means to be a global citizen.  Through their learning they can see that it is important for us to make a difference to the lives of people we will never know, but who deserve justice, fairness, equity and love.
