St Edmund’s School raises £200 for CAFOD Appeal

St Edmund’s School raises £200 for CAFOD Appeal

Children holding up letters 'Hope is Contagious'

St Edmund’s Primary School was recently inspired by CAFOD’s Summer of Hope Assembly, at which the #SummerOfHope and #CoronaVirusAppeal for schools was launched. The Headteacher, Mrs Elizabeth Higgins, reported that the pupils ‘have held two mufti days, and a crazy hair day which was planned by Year 6. Our Year 6 children have been really inspired and have created letters spelling out ‘Hope is Contagious’ which you might be able to read in the picture! One of our Year 1 pupils has also held a sponsored karaoke at home with his family. The children have raised over £200 so far, and they have further activities planned!’


This is a fantastic effort by the children, staff and parents at the school. Hope certainly is contagious at St Edmund’s! Well done everyone.
