A very warm welcome to St Francis' Catholic Primary School  

Charitable Giving 

As a caring School, we have been thinking of others, either by raising money or sending in gifts for those less fortunate than ourselves. Below you will find information about some of the good causes we have supported this year: 

Harvest 2018  

Year 1 lead our Harvest Celebrations this year and supported the Clevedon Foodbank by asking families to bring into suitable non-perishable food items. They also celebrated this wonderful time of year with families in their Harvest Assembly. 

Asian Animals 2018 £233.50 

As part of our Feast of St Francis' celebrations, a team of year 6 children and a very helpful mum raised a total of £233.50 for the Animals Asia charity. For a small donation, children come to school dressed in something to do with our environment - we saw many animals, explorers and vets! The year 6 pupils also invited the children to come and decorate a cake or biscuit. 

Mission Together 2018 £68.17 

The school decided to use its first ‘Mile and Day’ event to raise funds for Mission Together’s appeal to support refugee children in Jordan. The pupils raised £68.17 which will go a long way towards funding a drink and snack for every child in one refugee school for the year. 

Lent 2018 - Wheelie Wednesday £2429.47 

The children took part in a sponsored event called Wheelie Wednesday to raise money for two charities - The Great Western Air Ambulance and The Alzheimer’s Society. The children rode for 15 minutes around the school grounds on scooters dressed in their pyjamas to remind them of the sick people they are helping.  
Mary's Meals 2017 £67.04 
Funds were raised at our Christmas Services and Celebrations and whilst the children word Christmas Jumpers. The money was used to help feed the hungary.  
Thank you for the donations given after 'Book at Bedtime'. They will help send books to libraries in Africa. 

Book Aid International 2017 £31.96 

CLIC SARGENT 2018 ~ OVER £100 
The children supported this charity on World Cancer Day by buying and wearing CLIC Sargent wristbands. 

Comic Relief 2017 £248.30 

Children wore a piece of red clothing and their Comic Relief t-shirts with their school uniform. And of course, their red nose! 
We have raised an amazing total of £790.92 through donations given by parents and friends during our various Christmas events.  
The charities supported are Childrens Hospic SW, Blood Bikers and Cancer Research. 
Christmas Collections 2018 

Wear it. Beat it. Day £127.25 

The children had great fun wearing something red to school, whilst supporting the British Heart Foundation's Wear It. Beat It. Day. A parent has been actively involved in this campaign and spoke to the children during an assembly to raise their awareness. 
Children in Need 2018  
The school was buzzing with lots of excited children spending their money at the stalls and games organised by the Year 3 pupils. A cake stall for parents and carers also took place in the Year 3 classroom.  
Royal British Legion 2018 £152.73 
Every year we hold a Service of Remembrance in school to remember all the people who lost their lives during the two World Wars and other conflicts. Pupils and staff were invited to buy a poppy to help support the work of the Royal British Legion.
