Rights Respecting School – The Term Ahead

During the Summer Term we have so many exciting things to look forward to .  Yesterday we welcomed Mr Paul Harris from UNICEF to St Catherine’s School. We were delighted to show  Mr Harris around our school . He had the opportunity to meet with children, parents, staff and governors.  Mr Harris spoke to  a large group of children from year 2-6 at length and also spoke to children in their classroom setting about our understanding of a Rights Respecting School and the ‘Rights of the Child’. He truly enjoyed his day with us. We look forward to reading his report in the coming weeks.

Global Learning ‘WE walk for Water’ on 27th April

At St Catherine’s we believe that every person deserves clean water– UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 Clean water and Sanitation.  On the 27th  April we will raise awareness through our lessons and raising funds for our WE Villages . Every day, women and children around the world spend 200 million hours collecting the water they need to survive. We want to be part of a global movement and take part in this special day with our wider WE community. For every 15 pound raised by our school one person will gain access to clean water for life.  We welcome your support . The Fundraising Captains will be in the playground before  school to collect a voluntary  £1 contribution. Thank You!
