Courageous Advocacy - We can make a Difference!
Proverbs 31:8 Good News Translation (GNT) of the Bible
"Speak up for people who cannot speak for themselves. Protect the right of all who are helpless"
Two of our children went to Carlisle to take part in the international protests about Climate Change. Back in school they asked if we could have a Worship Time linked to climate change. We shared the stories of some inspirational children such as Greta Thunberg, and our two children wrote this report to share with our children. We gave all of the children in Worship time a bit of homework, an 'Eco quiz' that they could do online to identify how they can 'do their little bit to help'. We also decided that our KS2 children would watch Newsround daily to help us keep updated as to the climate change protests and progress.
Within our Harvest Celebration, we collected goods for Manna House, an establishment in Kendal who provide support for the homeless. The community donated non-perishable goods to support our cause too. Mrs Kelsall delivered our gifts to Manna House - they were delighted with our contributions. Our children learned to be thankful for what they have, and to consider those less fortunate than themselves.
