The annual mix of merriment and madness that is Red Nose Day!
Mrs. Thomson showed us a very moving video which reminded the school just how lucky we are in this wonderful country of ours. She pointed out how unfair it is that some people have so much and others have so little. It was a fitting addition to our Collective Worship theme of Justice.
Did you know that in early translations of the Bible, the word LOVE was spelled “CHARITY” and this charity/ love, was seen as the greatest virtue? Jesus suggested that, like the Good Samaritan, we should all be on the lookout to care for others. “Charity begins at home” doesn’t mean our care is restricted to those at home; rather, it is a place from which to reach out to others.
To quote Shakespeare: (We need) a tear for pity and a hand open as day for melting charity.
So what did you do for charity on Red Nose Day? Any fun photos sent our way would be greatly appreciated!!!
