Links with South Sudan
As a school we have strong links with South Sudan Voices of Hope
During Collective Worship the children have been learning about giving and helping others. The children have learnt about giving in the context of the world, such as helping children in Sudan who do not have access to clean water or need help with seed corn which has been lost due to adverse weather or war.
The children have made ‘zakat’ boxes to collect loose change in.
All money collected is given in person to Kenneth Elisapana, who runs the Christian charity South Sudan Voices of Hope, when Miss Margaret sees him each year.
Kenneth keeps in touch with the children via Skype (see Year 2 - Skype Calls for further information/photos). The children have opportunities each term to find out what is happening in South Sudan and how their money is helping.
