“Speak up for people who cannot speak for themselves. Protect the rights of all who are helpless.” Proverbs 31:8
What is a courageous advocate?
A courageous advocate is someone who champions a cause that is special and meaningful to them.
At Bryn St Peter's Church of England Primary School we have a strong emphasis on encouraging our pupils to become courageous advocates, not just locally, but nationally and globally.
We teach our children that it is important to help others when we can no matter who they are, where they come from, or what challenges they may face. We teach this through the teachings of the bible and learning about other courageous advocates. Our Christian values and carefully planned opportunities in our curriculum ensure that the children regularly discuss and debate the big issues, challenge injustice, and engage in activities that can bring about change are always present.
We have carried out a range of different fundraising to support many good causes, some of which include:
- A local food bank (Ashton Pantry);
- Comic Relief;
- Children in Need;
- Compassion - sponsoring a child in poverty
- The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal
We want to show our connection with, and care for, the world in which we all live and care for the people who live in it, by supporting charities significant to our children, their families and our staff.
The ladys from Ashton Pantry came to collect the harvest food we had collected and to help the people of Bryn and Ashton.
Meet Manouha ...
Manouha lives in the poverty stricken country of Haiti
We raise money to sponsor Manouha so that she can have an education and have enough food and drink to survive.
We pray for the people of Haiti, that God will take care of them.
