Thank you to everyone who contributed to the 'Open Door' collection. Mr Griffiths was able to deliver the wide selection of groceries during half term. It was wonderful to see such a wide range of toiletries included. The staff were extremely grateful and Mr Griffiths commented on the delicious smells coming from the kitchens. Hopefully, we will be able to have another collection before Christmas.

October 2020. Christian Distinctiveness Action Plan 2020-2021

Thursday 15th October 2020

 

As part of our Harvest Festival celebrations this year we will be collecting for the charity 'Open Door'. 

Open Door is a day centre for Taunton’s homeless community. In the first instance they provide a warm welcome, a smile and a cuppa.

After that they work to ensure people have their basic needs met. They have showers, a clothing store and provide a laundry facility. They also serve breakfast and lunch with unlimited refills of tea, coffee and juice. This all works to increase people’s self-esteem and gives them a positive sense of belonging to our community.

They then offer tailored support plans for individuals which target key goals such as developing life skills, sustaining accommodation and accessing employment. All of this is underpinned by a staff team of three and a huge team of over 45 volunteers. Without their volunteers, and support from donors, they would not be able to make such a difference in people’s lives.

On Friday 23rd October, Mrs Griffiths will be collecting at the front of school any donations you would like to make this year. Donations might include coffee, tea, sugar, cereals, juice, tinned meat or vegetables, cooking sauces, toiletries, washing powder etc..

Many thanks

Jo Griffiths

Autumn Term 2020. At Kingston St Mary school we have a strong, distinctive Christian ethos and encourage children to develop values of Trust, Humility, Truthfulness, Perseverance, Forgiveness, Responsibility, Respect, Peace, Compassion, Courage, Justice and Thankfulness. We ensure that children learn these values through the teachings and stories that Jesus told. Children have opportunities to think about and apply Christian values through religious education lessons, collective worship and as an integral part of our curriculum. This half term (Autumn 2020) our value is - Respect.
