3C's Ethos Group

Caring Christian Children

Purpose of the Group
A very warm welcome to the 3'C's!  We are a group of children made up of representatives from across the key stages. We meet together once a week with Mrs van Zyl, we also welcome Father Nick and Mrs Adams who join us at times to hear about our projects. Our aim is to promote the Christian values that we learn about at Middleforth both within our school and our local community.  This year the 3C's group has expanded!   Many of the members who were in the group last year will be staying on for another year to help develop 3C's and share what they have learnt with younger members of the group.

If you have any ideas that you would like to share with the 3C's group or suggestions, please send them with your class representative.

Why I joined 3C's...

"I want to help the school, I want to be supportive."  Christopher, Y5.
"I want to help create peaceful spaces." Emmerson, Y5
"I like helping make the school a better place." Catherine, Y3


Thank you!

A huge thank you to all our families that supported the Harvest Appeal.  Through your support we were able to donate over 150 items to the Penwortham Food Bank.  From our popcorn sale we managed to raise £65!  This money is being split with half being sent to the Bishops Harvest Appeal and the other half to support the building of the community centre in Uganda.  (Thanks to our Mums for helping us make popcorn!).
