This half-term our Christian Value is: Compassion
We believe that every child is a gift from God, and as such brings with them unique talents and characteristics which are to be nurtured and celebrated. Within our educational family each action made and decision taken is underpinned with Christian values, and this is recognised as a strong characteristic of our school. We feel a deep responsibility to nurture core values that can be shared and expressed by all regardless of faith or belief. As a school and community we seek to explore the meanings of core values and their significance in Christianity and other religions.
The gifts of love, peace, respect, faith, loyalty, courage, hope, friendship, determination, forgiveness, trust and compassion are the values we want our children to leave with. While these gifts are inclusive of human values we try to anchor them into the Christian faith by relating them to the bible through stories and readings.
Well done to Year 5 for leading our trust worship at the end of the half term.
We enjoyed celebrating World Book Day this week with a 'guess the book from the prop' quiz. Well done to all our children and their families who joined in to make it such fun!
Our St Hilda’s Citizen’s Group have been working hard to establish a link through Action Aid with a family in Zambia. Money raised from our non uniform day and hat parade in December has been used to “sponsor” Angela. Angela is from a Christian family who live in Nakonde in Zambia. She is 8 years old. Her family are very poor and their staple diet is Nshima - a thick maize porridge. They have no clean, safe drinking water and the family cannot afford to send Angela to school.
