We are aware that keeping our children hydrated will aid them to perform at their very best throughout the school day. As a result, we decided to invest in AquAid Water Coolers. Our unique relationship with AquAid has also given our school the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves. This means that for each machine that we have, we have donated £20 per year per cooler to The Africa Trust. Through our contributions to The Africa Trust, an ‘Elephant Pump’ is being installed in Africa on our behalf. This pump will bring much needed, clean, fresh drinking water and improve the quality of life of those who will have access to our well. Our school's name will be displayed proudly on our well and we look forward to adding some photos and letters of thanks from the villages to our site in the near future.
Jeans for Genes Day - Friday 23rd September 2016
Thank you for your fantastic support! At the final count we raised:-
This money will help to support the charity which aims to change the world for children with genetic disorders. Individually, genetic disorders are rare but together they affect 1 in 25 children born in the UK - that's more than 30,000 babies each year! Their associated health problems mean that genetic disorders are the biggest cause of death of children aged 14 and under.
Thank you for your continued generosity of all of our fundraising events in school
Fundraising for the Whitechapel Centre
A huge ‘Thank You’ to all our families who supported our own clothes day on Friday 1st April in support of The Whitechapel Centre. The girls raised in excess of £2000 for this very worthwhile cause, £457 of this being from our school.
Thank you for your continued support and well done to the girls who took part.

Christmas Performances 2015
This year we raised lots of money from donations given by families who watched our Christmas performances. All the money from Nursery went to Oxfam and all the donations from the junior performances went to the Mother of Mercy charity which supports the homeless in Liverpool.
Operation Christmas Child 2015 - volunteering at the warehouse
Members of our School Council had the chance to see where our shoeboxes go when they leave the school. They unloaded shoeboxes, sorted them in to the appropriate gender and age categories, looked through to ensure they were full to the brim with safe and suitable items and even helped to count and record the number of shoeboxes on the pallet ready to load onto the lorries! It was a very busy morning and I was delighted to hear volunteers at the warehouse commenting on how well behaved and polite the Emmaus pupils were.
We discovered that a lorry will leave the warehouse on Saturday bound for Romania and that 18,000 shoeboxes need be checked and ready to transport to Liberia the following week.
If you haven't yet had a chance to fill a shoebox, please consider doing so. The shoeboxes will be collected from Emmaus on Friday 20th November.
NSPCC and Childline
The School Council were invited to see behind the scenes at Liverpool's Hargreaves Centre which is where our local Childline call centre is based. The money we raised with our welly walk was enough to pay for the complete training of two volunteers with some left over to pay for equipment for their amazing sensory room!
Take a look at the photos below to see what we discovered in this wonderful resource:
Fantastic support yet again - £186 raised which means this will be fund matched by the UK Government and £392 will be on its way to this good cause.
Thank you for your continued generosity
We raised £3487.62 for the NSPCC and Childline. This is a phenomenal amount. Thank you so much for your generosity. The School Council members have been invited to the Liverpool Childline call centre in May to find out where our money has gone.
We had a great time on the Welly Walk in spite of the rain. All the children from Reception to Y6 set out on a walk round the school perimeter over the field and in all the mud. For once the teachers DIDN'T shout "Stay off the grass!" It was lots of fun and we got fit too. Our next challenge is to remember to bring in our sponsor money by Thursday 26th February.
Jayne Moran from the NSPCC lead two assemblies in school on Wednesday 28th January to launch a fundraising campaign. She met with the School Council to discuss ideas for a sponsored event and they decided upon a sponsored Welly Walk on Friday 13th February.
Operation Christmas Child 2014
This year Emmaus families filled an impressive 297 shoeboxes for children who wouldn't otherwise receive presents this Christmas. This is an amazing total - what a fantastic demonstration of generosity.
This project was led by the School Council who worked hard presenting an assembly to the whole school, putting up posters, stacking shoeboxes and loading them onto the charity's van. The School Council even had the opportunity to visit the Operation Christmas Child warehouse in South Liverpool where they were able to help check shoeboxes and prepare them for their onward journey. Take a look at the video below to see what all is involved.
The whole school supported Jeans for Genes Day in September.
Jeans for Genes raises money for Genetic Disorders UK and aims to change the world for children with genetic disorders.
Individually, genetic disorders are rare but together they affect 1 in 25 children born in the UK - that's more than 30,000 babies each year. Their associated health problems mean that genetic disorders are the biggest cause of death of children aged 14 years and under.
At the last count we had raised £394!
We raised the magnificent sum of £882.10 for the Woodlands Hospice
Thank you to everyone who gave donations.
Last year all the children in the school took part in a sponsored Zumba workout to raise money for LEPRA. The children learned about what leprosy is and that it is still a very serious problem in the poorer countries of the world. They also learned that just £21 can fund the medication to cure a person of this terrible disease.
Our children raised the astonishing total of £1,900. This is enough to cure 90 people and give them their lives back.
