St. Luke's CE Primary School has always been a place of learning which encourages pupils to think of others.
Matthew 22:37-40 “Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
During recent years, pupils have been encouraged to consider who our neighbour really is........and as part of that journey we have used a Christian Aid resource to support our learning: Global Neighbours.
During the past few terms, we have been providing our pupils the opportunity through both RE, Worship and our Thematic Learning about poverty and inequality not just in their locality - but nationally and internationally. Learning has focussed upon famous courageous advocates, learning had addressed the threats to our global living such as plastic pollution, learning has given our pupils an insight into the lives of those who are less fortunate than ourselves.
We hope that our work will be recognised through Christian Aid's 'Global Neighbours' Scheme.
We believe that in being a good neighbour and making small but significant changes, we can change the world for the better.
