This week we have reflected on Little Way Week. At lunchtime on Friday the KS2 children were invited to come and write down little ways in which they could make a big difference. This is what a little French girl did many years ago. She tried to be a good girl - she was kind to her sisters and worked hard at school, but sometimes she found that being good could be difficult. Thérèse made up her mind to try to do a good deed every day. She realised that just because she was little, it didn’t mean that her little actions couldn’t make a big difference. This was called her ‘little way’ and this little girl grew up to be Saint Thérèse’. Little Way Week is when we try to follow her example.
CAFOD’s Harvest fast day was again a success at St Marie’s. As part of their brighten up the harvest, everyone was encouraged to wear one item of bright clothing, along with their school uniform. This varied from rainbow wigs to colourful shoes and strange shirts (Did you see what Mr F was wearing!). Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Over 100 meals of soup were served – a magnificent total- giving us over £370 to donate to CAFOD. We also have many (56!) tins of soup/items of food to send to the Grace Food Bank. Thank you very much for your generosity! Thank you also to those who prepared, cooked and served the soup, especially the children who came in extra early this morning to help prepare the vegetables and make the soup! It was delicious! Today we really learned how other people live with less food and raised money for CAFOD. Thank you to everyone who helped to brighten up the harvest today!
