Whitechapel Centre - Liverpool
We were delighted to raise £1280.80 for the Whitechapel Centre in December 2019. The children raised this through a Christmas jumper day and generous contributions from parents following our wonderful Key Stage 2 Christmas performances.
The Whitechapel Centre is the leading homeless charity for the Liverpool region . They work with people who are rough sleeping, living in hostels or struggling to manage their accommodation. Last year they suppported more than 4,300 people in Liverpool who were experiencing homelessness!
Our School builds an elephant pump in Africa!
The Africa Trust in association with AquAid Water Coolers
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’ has been 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 is displayed proudly on our well and we look forward to adding some photos and letters of thanks from the villages to our website in the near future.
Operation Christmas Child
Our School Council worked hard to promote this campaign within the school. They planned and delivered a whole school assembly, stuck up posters around the school building to raise awareness, reminded their classmates to fill shoe boxes and then helped to load the van with over 200 shoe boxes.
Yet again Emmaus families have proved to be extremely generous and compassionate in thinking of others who, this Christmas, will not receive any gifts. We supported Operation Christmas Child by bringing in shoe boxes filled with presents for children aged 2-14 years. Class 3CB helped the School Council to carry these boxes to the van which transported them on the first leg of their journey, to the OCC warehouse in Speke. On Wednesday the School Council will visit the warehouse and learn what happens to boxes after they leave our school. Watch this space for more photographs!
Jeans for Genes Day - Friday 13th 2017
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

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:
