We were pleased, on Tuesday this week, to welcome Class 2 at St. Anne’s College Junior School to The Drive.
In RE lessons they are exploring the features, similarities and differences in places of worship of different faiths. They have already visited a local Synagogue and Hindu Temple and their final visit is to a Mosque next week.
We enjoyed a very successful Circuit afternoon tea in the Hall at The Drive. Everyone enjoyed the afternoon and money was raised for this very important charity.
Action for Children is the children’s charity of the Methodist Church. It was founded in 1869 by Methodist minister Revd. Thomas Bowman Stephenson in response to the poverty and danger faced by vulnerable and destitute children and young people living rough on the streets of London.
