SCIAF / Lent


Since St.Bernadette’s Primary School is Catholic we give money to support SCIAF. SCIAF supports children who don’t have what they need to survive. SCIAF stands for Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund. Over many years we have made lots of money for SCIAF by doing Coffee mornings, Odd shoe day, World book day, Sponsored walk, Back to front uniform day. Soon we will be doing world book day but this is slightly different, instead of dressing up as a character we are dressing up as an adjective like for example pink, blue, sparkly, dotted, striped. Also we will be doing crazy hair day, Coffee morning, Family Movie Afternoon and our favourite dress down day.


In school we are preparing for Easter. For Lent  we are doing promises to give up something or to do something. For example you could help around the house more often, give up junk food or sweets or maybe being kinder to others. Some people give food or toys to charity to help others.
