The total raised so far from the Student Non-Uniform day on Friday 20 November is £856.00, we thank all who supported this worthy cause.
There is also a clothing appeal.
Non-Uniform Day Collection
The collection will be passed on to St Vincent de Paul.
As a collective effort to support the refugee crisis St. Mary’s will be directly supporting the work of St. Vincent de Paul in settling refugees in Leeds.
Support for Refugees Clothing Appeal
The emphasis on second-hand/used clothing are:
- Fleeces, particularly microfleece
- Track suit bottoms
- Hats and gloves
- These items are needed for adults and children, but there is a particular need for male adult clothing and trainers.
All items to be brought into form rooms
Over the half term break, fifty Year 10 students took part in a four day residential trip to the Amalfi Coast, Italy. The trip was structured with the Geography GCSE course in mind to give students a hands on understanding of the processes of tectonics and tourism.
St. Mary’s have had their Fairtrade Schools Award renewed after a considerable amount of hard work from both staff and pupils.
Four St. Mary’s students were lucky enough to be a part of the Fairtrade Celebration Event which was held in the Banqueting Suite of Leeds Civic Hall on 9 March
Caitlin (Year 9) is the first student to complete all the tasks required to achieve the award.
We are delighted to announce that St. Mary’s has been awarded the British Council International School Award in recognition of our work bringing the world into the classroom.
Students came in their own clothes on Wednesday 29 June 2016 and the event benefited The Bambisanani Partnership and World Youth Day charities.
We have given much of the produce away as prizes for Fairtrade Fortnight 2016 activities.
The event will take place in our Staffroom and will raise money to help Simphiwe Ndlovu, our Bambisanani Teacher
