Children learn about how other children around the world celebrate Christmas. They think about their own lives and how they can impact and care for others, at this time of the year. As a result of this, the children have decided to support this worthwhile charity.

As a school, we work closely with the local church and wider community to support this charity- Samaritan’s Purse.

Every Christmas, children and their families donate items for their Christmas shoe boxes. These shoeboxes are then donated to the church to distribute to children and families in need.

Toilet Twinning is an initiative which invites people to “twin” their own toilet with latrines in poor communities. This is a way of raising funds to enable people in the poorest nations to have clean water and a proper toilet, and to learn about hygiene.

Toilet Twinning used to be a partnership between two international charities, Christian Outreach for Relief & Development (Cord) and Tearfund, but now is solely a charity under Tearfund. It was formed in 2010, in response to the global sanitation crisis.

At Rossington St Michael’s CE Primary School, staff have joined together to raise funds to twin our staff toilets.

WaterAid is an international non-governmental organisation, focused on water, sanitation and hygiene. It was set up in 1981 as a response to the UN International Drinking Water decade. As of 2018, it was operating in 34 countries.

At Rossington St Michael’s DE Primary School, children learn about the importance of looking after those who are not as fortunate as themselves. They think about how to support and what can be done to best support others.

As a school, we alternate between donating at Harvest from supporting our local food bank and Water Aid.

There have been times, where children have wanted to do both. At this time, we support our local food bank in October and then Water aid during Lent times.

Read for Good

Children have learnt about the charity ‘Read for Good’. They heard about how this charity supported children in hospitals and provided children with books and resources.

Children chose to support this charity and completed a Readathon. We are so proud of what they achieved and how they launched their vision.
