Here is a great example of compassion in action by our Kingfishers and Starlings Classes.   

The children were inspired to action by the plight of Afghan children who have arrived in West Berkshire as refugees.  We thought about how it would feel to arrive in a new country with few possessions and feeling sad about the country and the people we had left behind.  Children raised funds to buy and fill two backpacks with writing materials and other equipment that the children could use at their new schools.  They were very proud to share these and explain why they were needed in collective worship on Monday.

The backpacks are being distributed by West Berkshire Action for Refugees.  Thank you to all the families of children in Kingfishers and Starlings Classes who supported their appeal.
