St Francis' 
Catholic Primary School 
 
 
The Prayer team were invited to spend the afternoon with Bishop Declan to talk about the Year of Mission. They travelled to his home in Leigh Woods where they were shown around his house and garden, shared photos of activities they had been doing in school and asked him lots of questions about his role as Bishop. Each class had submitted a question that they would like answered and the interview was recorded so the Bishop's responses could be played back to the whole school in Assembly. The Prayer team felt very honoured to be invited to Bishop Declan's house and enjoyed spending time with him and eating some rather delicious cakes which he had provided!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 supported this year: 

Harvest 2017 £383.50 

Children came into school looking amazing in a range of rainbow colours and spent their coins at a variety of class stalls raising money for CAFOD to help ‘brighten up the world’. 

Lent 2018 - Wheelie Wednesday £2429.47 

The children took part in a sponsored event called Wheelie Wednesday to raise money for two charities - The Great Western Air Ambulance and The Alzheimer’s Society. The children rode for 15 minutes around the school grounds on scooters dressed in their pyjamas to remind them of the sick people they are helping.  
Mary's Meals 2017 £67.04 
 
Funds were raised at our Christmas Services and Celebrations and whilst the children word Christmas Jumpers. The money was used to help feed the hungary.  
Thank you for the donations given after 'Book at Bedtime'. They will help send books to libraries in Africa. 

Book Aid International 2017 £31.96 

CLIC SARGENT 2018 ~ OVER £100 
The children supported this charity on World Cancer Day by buying and wearing CLIC Sargent wristbands.

53 Shoeboxes 2016 
Thoughtful and generous children at St Francis' School, Nailsea, have been helping make another child's Christmas a happy one by donating gifts and adding them to a colourfully decorated shoe box. The boxes are sent to children in other European countries who would not normally receive a present at all at Christmas. 

Wear it. Beat it. Day £127.25 
 

The children had great fun wearing something red to school, whilst supporting the British Heart Foundation's Wear It. Beat It. Day. A parent has been actively involved in this campaign and spoke to the children during an assembly to raise their awareness. 
Children in Need 2017 £382.68 
The school was buzzing with lots of excited children spending their money at the stalls and games organised by the Year 5 pupils. A cake stall for parents and carers also took place in the Year 6 classroom.  
Royal British Legion 2017 £127.85 
Every year we hold a Service of Remembrance in school to remember all the people who lost their lives during the two World Wars and other conflicts. Pupils and staff were invited to buy a poppy to help support the work of the Royal British Legion.
