Today was a very special day at St Paul's where we learnt all about the country South Africa. We were inspired to learn about South Africa as lots of us have links to this country through families, friends, holidays and even the staff! Mr and Mrs Bewley visited South Africa last year to support a charity called The Sozo Foundation. This charity has been set up to support local people who do not have a safe place to do their homework, a cooked meal every day or the chance at a good education with job opportunities. During the morning they inspired us by telling us about the work of The Sozo Foundation.
Throughout the day every class made their own South African themed baked goods and we sold them raising an amazing £200 for The Sozo Foundation. Thank you to everyone that came to our bake sale and helped to raise this money. If you would still like to donate to this wonderful cause you can via this link: https://www.give.net/bemorenate
The fun did not stop there! Have a look at the pictures below to see our wonderful South African inspired art work, Gumboot dancing (with our wellies on!), food tasting, music and a talk from Mrs Ashley about her life in South Africa before she moved to England.
