Mission Together would like to extend special thanks to the pupils, parents and staff at St Simon’s Catholic Primary School, Stockport, for their generous Lenten donation of £786.68.
Such a significant amount required the support of the whole school community and duly the whole community readily engaged in many fun activities. Year six organised an afternoon tea, Year five held a Mad Hatters’ tea party, Years four and three performed an Easter play, Years two and one undertook a sponsored spell, and Early Years Foundation Stage held a sponsored nursery rhyme sing-a-long.
Deputy Head teacher, Mrs Jayne Clarke, said of the school’s efforts, ‘It’s been lovely and parents were involved with lots of the activities.’ Thanks to St Simon’s community, Mission Together can continue to support the emotional, practical, and spiritual needs of children living in poverty overseas.

If you’ve been inspired by St Simon’s efforts and would also like to encourage children to help children, contact Mission Together to arrange for one of our volunteers to deliver an assembly in your school, or download our user friendly assemblies and other resources from our website.
