St Francis' 
Catholic Primary School 
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 recently 
Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee £1798.35 
To tie in with Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee, our annual sponsored event was called 'Celebrate 70'. Each class spent 70 minutes doing various challenges eg Throw and Catch a ball 70 times, skip 70 times, bounce a ball 70 times, run around the field 70 times, score 70 penalties. Some challenges were individual challenges, others were for a group. We organised the event to raise money for 'The Emmaus Project'. We are hoping to raise at least £1,000 so we can buy a water tank for a school in Uganda.  
The 179th St Bonaventure's Brownies also contributed to our fundraising total! 
Drop of Water £565  
During Lent we are collecting money to buy a well for a village in Uganda and are trying to fill a toilet with coins. We dressed in blue as part of the 'Drop of Water' day and took part in a workshop where we thought about how we can save water in solidarity with our brothers and sisters around the world who don't have clean water. 
Ukraine Appeal 
Thank you to everyone for your kind donations which are safely on their way to those in need. 

St Francis Mass and Harvest Sale - Water Source in Uganda £665 

Year 6 led our school Mass on the Feast of St Francis. At the Mass the children reminded us that St Francis gave what he had to help the poor. Inspired by this message, we organised a Harvest Sale in order to provide the funds for a school in Uganda to have its own independent water source. This resource will help to ensure a better level of hygiene and public health for those in the school and nearby village. It will also provide water to irrigate land so the children in the school can plant fruit trees and grow crops. Each class organised it's own stall and we are grateful to the parents who donated goods. In total £665 was raised which will help our brothers and sisters in one of the poorest parts of the world. 

The Grand Appeal for Bristol Children's Hospital 2021 £2621 

The Grand Appeal supports patients, families and staff at Bristol Children’s Hospital. Laps of the school field were completed to raise money and the children found many different ways to complete each lap. Thank you to parents, friends and family members who supported us. 

Children in Need 2021 £293 

The children had a surprise visit from Pudsey Bear as part of their Children in Need fund raising day. The children had chosen 'Strictly Sparkly' as their theme and they wore their best ballroom dancing outfits, sparkly hairbands and bow-ties in place of their school uniform. Pudsey visited each class and joined in the fun including races on the playground helping to raise lots of money for Children in Need!
