At St Margaret’s CE VA Primary School we recognise that God’s family is more than just our own local community but stretches throughout the world.

Our church worker, who has experiences of visiting and leading projects linked to many of the poorer areas of our world, has encouraged us to look outwards beyond our community. This has opened our eyes to recognise that we can make a difference whatever our age.

Even with the smallest acts of kindness we can bring about change to other lives and situations.

The Bible teaches in the story of the Good Samaritan, in Luke Chapter 10, how he showed love, care and compassion for a stranger.

In verse 37 Jesus tells us “You go, then and do the same.”

We encourage our children to see there is joy in helping others.

In our school we call that being MAD – Making A Difference.
