Lent 2021


From: Caritas, Diocese of Salford

Due to the restrictions, we are ‘resting’ the St Joseph Penny Appeal boxes this year for everyone’s safety. Instead, we are inviting schools and individuals to think about 1904, when the Appeal was first launched, and consider challenging themselves to raise that amount of money.  It could be £1.90, £19.04 or even £190.40!  We are encouraging you to share ideas to fundraise safely and creatively at home.  We have created a JustGiving page for fundraising to link to, and to safely collect sponsorship money.  

Advent Hampers 2020


A HUGE thankyou to all of the staff and friends of St Thomas of Canterbury who donated so many wonderful items to our Advent hamper collection this year. 


The children worked hard throughout Advent to earn their Advent tokens and on our penultimate day in school, Mr Deane conducted our very first (COVID safe) virtual draw. The whole school watched on as over 20 names were pulled out of the hat and the children and their families were then presented with a hamper filled with range of food and Christmas gift items. 

Advent Hampers 2020

Dear parents and carers,



Just an update on our fundraising that we did for CAFOD, back in December. As a school, we raised £513.00, which is an amazing amount. Thank you all so much for your generosity.


As a school, we have decided to buy the following world gifts, which will make so much difference to those in need.
