Another Christmas Proudly Supporting the St Francis Family Centre
On Thursday, 9th December, we delivered a minibus of presents to the St Francis Family Centre. As is the case every year, the gifts were bought with the money raised from last year’s Christmas Appeal co-ordinated by the Sixth Form Charity Committee. The
delivery also included presents from staff that had been bought specially and left under the tree in Main Reception. We also took some pre-loved toys donated by the children of some of our colleagues and a few treats for the centre staff.
St Francis works in partnership with parents to provide outstanding pre-school
education, giving disadvantaged children the best possible start in life in an area that has
the highest rate of child poverty in the country. The Centre is run by the Catholic Children’s Society, who also give members of our school community a tremendous amount of practical and financial help. In the photograph with four of our Sixth Form students are Margaret and Leander who run the centre.
