In today’s assembly, we talked about ‘Appreciating Food’ as part of our school values. We read a book called ‘It’s a No Money Day’- A poignant and pertinent exploration of life below the poverty line from the critically acclaimed award-winning creator Kate Milner.
“Mum works really hard, but today there is no money left and no food in the cupboards. Forced to visit the local foodbank, Mum feels ashamed that they have to rely on the kindness of others, but her young daughter can still see all the good in her day like reading and drawing, and even the foodbank. Maybe one day things will be different but for now together they brighten up even the darkest of days. A moving insight into the sad rise and necessity of foodbanks from the perspective of society’s most vulnerable.”
We will be collecting non perishable food items for a local charity called Gloucester Feed the Hungry until 9am this Friday. Cash donations are also accepted. Please hand in all donations to the school office or to your child’s class teacher. Jazakallah/Thank you
