Feedback from Jenny at 'Raise a Smile'following the donations of school uniform and KS2 recording and sending carol singing for the children of the school to watch:
'I really want to thank St Peter's for the huge boxes of uniforms! The blue uniforms will go to Kapita School and the Red to Uyoba who have red uniforms. We loved your singing and can't wait to sing backatya!
Many of the children only have one set of clothes and they will at least be able to wear one and wash one. They will need to carry water from the well to do that washing...imagine. For them it is just a daily routine! There is no electricity, so cooking is over a fire. I wish you could meet the kids as they are the happiest bunch I know. Thank you for kind donations, we are truly grateful.'
Class Two's Muslim experience afternoon.
As part of our Christian ethos, we promote tolerance and respect for all faiths and religions and we welcome those from other faith communities to join us in school.
Class Two were very fortunate to have had Mrs Khalid, a class parent, come in and share her Muslim faith with them. During this time, they learned about the five pillars of Islam and various Muslim festivals. They really enjoyed trying food that is traditionally eaten during times of celebration. The children were especially inquisitive about Ramadam and the discipline Muslims have to have to fast and the reasons why they do this. Mrs Khalid has agreed to join us to celebrate Ed ul Fitr in school next May when the festival takes place. We can't wait for her to join us again! Thank you so much Mrs Khalid 😊
