St Joseph’s RC Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. All staff, governors and volunteers are expected to share this commitment. For more information please see our safeguarding policy which can be found under Key Information > Policies & Statements > Safeguarding Policy.
The Caritas Ambassadors would like all of our children to be stars of advent this year. Every child has received a candy cane of their own to take home and pass on to a member of the community. This will be their act of kindness and part of their advent preparation. The children have been told that they can choose a parishioner at church, a shopkeeper, an elderly member of their community or a neighbour - as long as their parents are with them and agree with who they choose.
We have asked, if possible, for parents or carers to take a photograph when the children pass on their candy cane and some people have already done this - please see below! We will continue posting them as they are sent in.
Please encourage your child to try hard during advent to complete the Candy Cane Challenge so that we may spread kindness around our school and the local community.
