As part of the Federation’s Harvest Thanksgiving celebrations staff, parents and children were invited to bring donations of packets and tins of food and toiletries in to school to be collected for the Mid Norfolk Foodbank. The Foodbank is part of a national network supported by The Trussell Trust and it is one of many foodbanks set up in order to help families and individuals who are struggling with poverty and hunger across the UK.
Both the Junior and Infant Schools collected items as part of a Federation wide initiative, and the children were very proud of their collection of things that will contribute to helping those in need.
“We are always encouraging the children to think of others and talk about their emotions and how they might feel in different situations” said Mrs Reeve, RE and Assemblies Subject Leader at the Infant site. “This is a great way to help them reflect on giving to others, and they really enjoyed contributing”.
