As a church school, we run many events during the year to support local, national and international charities. The charities are selected by our School and Spiritual Council, who also organise and run the events.
Recent events have included The Race For Life, collecting goods for the Dover Food Bank and raising money for Children In Need, and Comic Relief.
Children In Need
For Children In Need this year, Our School Council asked all our children to dress as someone who inspires them. We had a huge range of costumes from suffragettes to vets and doctors. Some of our children also chose to dress up as our teachers and support staff or members of their family.

” We accept others and do not judge people because they are different or do not have what we have.” (Austin Year 4)
“The people at the the Dover Food Bank are inspirational. They give up their time to help other people who do not have enough.” (Louie Year 4)

Sarah from the Save The Children charity came to speak to us all about the work of the charity on our Christmas Jumper Day this year.
