A very warm welcome to St Francis' Catholic Primary School  
 
 
 
 
Charitable Giving 
 
As a caring School, we have been thinking of others, either by raising money or sending in gifts for those less fortunate than ourselves. Below you will find information about some of the good causes we have been supporting in this academic year: 
 
£2275 
Our Lent sponsored event "Rainbow Run" raised money for Children's Hospice South West and Transplant Sport.  
Donations of Toys and Clothing from families, individual pupil donations from Fahd and Fasiha, Grace's sponsored swim, Y2's Bring & Buy Sale, Izzy and Sam's Mum's charity group's dresses etc. 
 
What a fantastic response to the Haiyan typhoon victims! Mrs Mann on behalf of the Nailsea Filipino community writes,"Thank you for school community's support for our Box to the Philippines for typhoon Haiyan victims. We received lots of toys and clothes for children and adults". 
Family, work colleagues, friends were extremely generous in supporting these two worthy causes. Transplant Sport was chosen as one of our parents have received a heart transplant in May 2013. He came to speak to the children about the charity. 
 
Mountains of Tins! 
 
For our harvest giving this year, families were invited to send in tins and food for the Clevedon Food Bank. 
86 Boxes 
 
What fun we all had filling a shoebox for children who would otherwise not receive any presents at Christmas.  
 
Parents and children enjoy spending time over the Autumn holiday finding little gifts and surprises to go into the shoebox and it helps to remind us that not everyone is as fortunate as us. 
£284 
There shouldn't have been any latecomers for school last Friday when staff and pupils came in their pyjamas! Money was raised this year by paying £1 to wear pyjamas and Emily P, Year 6 raised an amazing £84 with her sponsored silence. 
 
 
£66.85 
Every year we hold a Service of Remembrance in school to remember all the people in the Services and civilians who have lost their lives during the two World Wars and other conflicts. Pupils and staff were invited to buy a poppy towards the work of the Royal British Legion. 
 
 
Rainbow Run

Our Lent sponsored event "Rainbow Run" raised money for Children's Hospice South West and Transplant Sport. Family, work colleagues, friends were extremely generous in supporting these two worthy causes.
