In July 2018, the School Council planned and led a whole school Collective Worship encouraging us all to take responsibility for global issues, inspiring us to take action to help others. They told us all about the Christian Aid Global Neighbours Scheme. Their powerpoint is below.
As a school, we have always tried to promote an ‘international mindedness’, encouraging children to reflect on our place in the world. By taking part in the Global Neighbours scheme run by Christian Aid, we want to help everyone in our school family become courageous advocates for the common good, locally and globally and in doing so, encourage a deeper understanding of global injustice and how we can all become active global citizens.
In our Harvest Service, we shared how Christian Aid has helped lots of people around the world.
Children at St Luke's decided that the collection of £187.72 from the Harvest Service should go towards a project supported by Christian Aid: helping crab farmers in Bangladesh.
