Solidarity and the Common Good
- Speaking clearly and showing respect to our neighbours in the community who are in need.
- St. Therese of Lisieux
Autumn Term Focus 2021: We explored the Catholic Social Teachings of Solidarity of the Common Good, reflecting on the need to show dedication to our fellow human beings through our individual actions and initiatives. We raised money for CAFOD who had a fundraising campaign for all communities who dedicate their lives to protecting God's creation within the climate crisis. Additionally, we donated items to our Stratford Food Bank to help those in need in the time of Harvest. To reflect on the Saint of Therese of Lisieux, Year 3 led 'Little Way Week' encouraging their school peers to show acts of kindness and bring about change both in school and within our local community.
