What is Courageous Advocacy?
Courageous advocacy is the act of speaking out against an issue of injustice, often on behalf of those whose voice is not heard.
We would like to celebrate children who have been courageous advocates. If you would like to share how your child has been a courageous advocate, please email your child's year group email address e.g email@example.com
To celebrate the King's coronation Imogen decided her act of service would be to go on a litter pick walk around Buckshaw village.
Turkey and Syria Appeal
The worship group wanted to raise money for Turkey and Syria, as they had seen the devastation that the Earthquake had caused. As a group they wrote a letter to Mrs Wright explaining why they would like to raise money. On the 10th February the school had a non-uniform day to raise money. The school raised around £1,500 to send towards the aid effort in Turkey and Syria. School also received donations from other members of the community to add to the final donations.
Evie - Litter Pick
After learning in school about how some people are damaging God's creation, Evie decided to conduct a litter pick around Buckshaw Village.
Year 3 raised £62 for Water aid, they wore something blue to raise money and displayed posters around school. The children wanted to raise money to support the Water aid charity after learning about the injustice in the world where some people do not have access to clean water.
Children from Year 4 decided that they would like to litter pick around school, because they wanted to look after our school grounds. They got the equipment that they needed and did a fabulous job! Well done!
Lucy decided that she would like to donate her beautiful long hair to the Little Princess Trust - this is a charity who provide real hair wigs to young people who have lost their hair through cancer treatments. Not only did she donate her hair, but also raised a further £570 for the charity. We are super proud of Lucy and how her generosity will help so many other children! Well done!
