It's Anti-Bullying Week this week, and to take part, year 6 have been focusing on acts of kindness.
Yesterday, each year 6 pupil received a Christingle collection candle, which they will be taking home to try and collect coins. The money collected will be brought back into school and used to support the Children’s Society’s work with young people who are experiencing a range of complex issues, and who feel alone.
“We hope to bring love to the hearts of children who feel ignored, sanctuary to the lives of those who feel unsafe, and peace to the minds of young people who feel like they simply don’t matter. Through Christingle, you can help give a child their first Christmas free from sadness and fear.”
- The Children’s Society
The collection boxes will hopefully help year 6 think about other children who may not be as fortunate as themselves, with the focus on supporting our community and choosing an act of kindness. The collection boxes will be returned to school and the climax will be the Christingle service in St Marks church on Wednesday 5th December.
