Thank you to Nora Adam and Dr Omer Faruk Sener from the Rumi Mosque in Edmonton for visiting our school. They delivered very hands on and informative Islam assemblies. The children were surprised at the similarities between our two religions and learnt about how muslims pray. All the children liked the opportunity of being able to see and touch the prayer mats, look at the prayer beads which are similar to our Rosary Beads and the examine the Quran. Dr Omer reminded us that Islam means peace and that we are all brothers and sisters.
Christmas Appeal for the North London Foodbank
Thank You to all the parents, carers and children for the very kind and generous gifts they have donated to us in aid of the North Enfield Foodbank. These gifts will be appreciated by members of our local community. The charity provides emergency food and support to local residents who are in need of immediate help. Once again, Thank You.
Here are some of the comments our pupils have made about the Enfield Foodbank:
“Volunteers meet people who need help. They give them food and a hot drink.”
“Volunteers help people to solve long term problems.”
Visit of The Mayor of Enfield to St.George's
We were delighted to have The Mayor of Enfield, Mrs Bernadette Lappage - herself a past pupil, visit us for our Harvest Festival assembly in October. It was lovely to see the article in this month's 'Our Enfield' magagzine, showing Mrs Lappage with some children from our school raising money for the Enfield Sounds Great charity appeal. We are very proud of our charity work at St.George's and so were delighted to support the mayor's charity.
North London Hospice
On Monday 4th July, as part of our Year of Mercy day, two ladies from the North London Hospice came in to talk to the children about the work that they do to support those who are ill. The children worked on a design for a treasure box that the Hospice will use when visiting other schools. A child’s design in Year 4 was chosen and we look forward to seeing the end result! We held a ‘Muffins and Mocktails’ stall after school to raise money for the North London Hospice and we raised a huge £426.36! Through our work with the Hospice we were reminded of the corporal act of mercy of caring for those who are sick.
