Fundraising is an important part of our Christian work. Members of our school community have a tradition of being very generous in their support of the different charities we adopt each year. We support a range of charities throughout the year and will be informing our families through email communication of ways they can support.

Our Christmas Advent Charity Initiative 2018:
As we prepared for Christmas, instead of opening a door on an Advent calendar and eating a chocolate, this year, we did active service towards those who are in need. We arranged visits to spend time with the lonely, serve the needy and provide for the homeless. We updated our Advent Calendar everyday with images of our service for others to see. During Advent, instead of saying, 'I WANT'... we said, 'I GIVE' and felt the warmth from helping others. Jesus gave us the biggest gift by giving up his life, so we followed his example and gave up our time for others during Advent.
