Courageous Advocacy at Marston Thorold's
“Love your neighbour as yourself” Mark 12: 29-31
We are courageous advocates for the common good, locally, nationally and globally. We recognise that life is full of ups and downs and that at times all people will face challenges that they need help and support in overcoming. We believe that people are worth spending time with, that people need time to grow and need loving attention. The Christian Gospel says that every person has a unique task to do, with God, and for God, whether they know it or not. We hold and courageously advocate the conviction that there is something mysterious, and potentially wonderful, in everybody.
We support a range of charities in our local area, nationally and globally. The faith school council work with staff, governors, parents, pupils and Marston’s Church to identify worthy causes to support.
Our Christian values ensure that opportunities to discuss the big issues, to challenge injustice and to engage in activities that can bring about change are always present. We aim to widen children’s horizons and help them to see the positive impact they themselves can have on others worldwide.
We sent Easter Cards to members of our local community to let them know that they are in our thoughts at Easter.
This was received very positively by the local community who reached out to send their thanks and appreciation. We received cards, emails, gifts, visits and phone calls.
Red Nose Day
Friday 18th March 2022
We all enjoyed Red Nose Day and it was lovely to see the children in non-uniform. We have raised over £35 which will be going to very good causes in addition to selling out of red noses.
Thank you for your support.
Children in Need
19th November 2021
Everyone enjoyed coming to school in their pyjamas. Mars Class did some research into Children in Need to find out when the campaign began and who they help in order to realise how their money can really help to make a difference.
We raised a fabulous £74.00.
Thank you for your donations.
We had great fun !!!
End Polio Now Campaign November 2021
The Rotary Club of Long Bennington and surrounding villages have congratulated pupils at Marston Thorold’s Primary School after they helped to raise £60 to plant purple crocuses in Marston village.
It was part of the Rotary’s ongoing campaign to End Polio Now.
The children have planted crocus bulbs along the village church path. In total they have planted over 600 bulbs which were bought from the Long Bennington Rotary Club in support of their ‘End Polio Now’ charity. The children raised £60 from the School Council’s teddy tombola to fund this initiative. The purple crocuses will flower next March and we hope that the community of Marston enjoy them in the spring.
