Coventry Editorial 1st Nov, 2023   0

YOUNGSTERS at St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School were celebrating after a scheme aimed at helping them learn about inequality won a prestigious award.

The Wood End school have received the LiveSimply Award from the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development (CAFOD) after launching a series of projects designed to educate youngsters about the world’s poorest communities.

The projects have highlighted the importance of caring for people and the planet, including collecting for local foodbanks and working with the Coventry Cyrenians at Christmas to collect essential items and festive treats.

The youngsters have also renovated the school’s Mary statue, planted wildflowers in its prayer garden and launched a whole-school recycling project.

The award was handed out to Catholic communities displaying they are keeping other less fortunate people all over the world in their thoughts.

Danielle Kingham, Head of School at St Patrick’s who led the LiveSimply journey, said: “Our staff go over and above every day for the families in their care and it is lovely to see this recognised.”
