The distinct aims and Christian values of St Augustine’s C of E Primary School underpin every aspect of school life. We instill the idea of courageous advocacy within our pupils enabling them to develop a greater awareness of the challenges others face in life and the role they play as individual advocates to support causes and make a difference.
HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE IN CRISIS
St Augustine’s have supported Salford Foodbank over the years, mainly through Harvest Festivals. Pupils across school donated tins, cereals and biscuits. Salford foodbank help people in crisis and need of food in the local area.
Over 90% of the food distributed by foodbanks in The Trussell Trust network is donated by the public – that’s why your food donations are absolutely vital to our ability to give everyone referred to us a balanced and nutritious three-day supply of food. We have a shopping list of standard items that go in our food parcels.
In December we all wore Christmas Jumpers – we raised £200 for the Salford Foodbank.
Through the generosity of our parents we also were able to send a food parcel to KidZrus Christmas Food Appeal.
We know things have been difficult this year, but together, we really can make a huge
