On Thursday morning Mr Soyka, Mrs Emin and Mr Duran from Our Lady’s Convent made the short journey to Morrisons in Stoke Newington to take part in ITV’s “Text Santa” Christmas charity drive. Mr Duran the extended schools coordinator from Our Lady’s Convent helped make the arrangements for St Ignatius to be involved in the project. A group of Year 6 children were chosen by their teachers and spent over an hour and half on the shop floor helping members of the general public to bag their shopping. In exchange and a sign of their gratitude they made a donation to the “Text Santa” appeal. The staff at Morrisons were so impressed by the children’s enthusiasm and hard work that they treated all of them to a light lunch which they thoroughly enjoyed. They were also given a complimentary advent calendar for their efforts too. The children received lots of praise from members of the general public and were great ambassadors for our school. They demonstrated true Ignatian values and were an embodiment of our PEARL values. Thank you children.
