Our academy has launched a mission entitled Called to Serve to promote our common message and to connect with our communities and those within the community who need assistance.
Here at St. Edward’s we recognise that, through our baptisms, we are called to share in Christ’s vocation to spread the Good News and serve one another. Serving one another is something that we strive to do every day in the name of Jesus.
Over the course of the academic year 2018-2019, we will share pictures and stories of our service to God, one another and our communities. Check this page regularly for updates and progress of our Called to Serve mission.
Please see the link at the bottom of this page to see our plan for the year.
On Wednesday 19th December, we launched our mission through a shared liturgy. Each class planned and led a different stage of the liturgy.
During December, each class collected food, gifts and other festive goodies for families who may be less fortunate. Your generous donations have enabled many families to have a far more happy Christmas – thank you.
Care Home Carols
Our school choir visited a local Care Home in the last week of term to sing carols with many of the residents. This brought joy to so many with the children receiving lots of compliments in return!
Year 5/6 Advent Liturgy
Our eldest children led our school and parish families in a spiritual and moving service to draw our season of Advent to a close. We focused on the real meaning of Christmas and the examples of faith by those people we hear of in the Nativity.
EYFS & Y1: Our youngest children have been making cards and pictures to give to the Therapeautic Care Team at James Cook University Hospital. The team then delivers the cards and pictures to people in hospital who may have no visitors.
Y2: Year 2 have been collecting for Middlesbrough Foodbank this year. Your donations have supported those in our community who are in need – thank you!
Y3/4: Year 3/4 have been raising money for Age UK this year, including selling delicious cakes in school! Their money will go toward supporting vulnerable, older members of our community.
Y5: Year 5G have supported Open Door North East this year, collecting your donations for ‘T Tuesdays’ to take for refugees in our area. These items include t-shirts (and other clothes); tea bags (and other hot drink items); toiletries and tins.
Year 5C were inspired by Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si, to look after our environment and so have been out litter picking to care for our common home.
Y6: Year 6 wanted to support Water Aid, ensuring some of the poorest in our world had access to clean, safe water.
