December 2023 - During Catholic Social Teaching week, year 6P had many discussions about the principle ‘preferential option for the poor’. We spoke about what it means to be poor and thought about the ways in which we could support those less fortunate than us. We decided that taking food donated by us to a local food bank would have the greatest impact. We felt really positive after doing this and understood that sometimes it is better to give than receive.
