Students care not just for themselves and those immediately around them but for the wider community and environment. Students support a minimum of three charities annually, a Local, National and International charity which they vote for and raise thousands of pounds to support and raise the profile of. Students host and serve Christmas dinner for local residents and staff and students are highly active in the parish and town communities of Aldridge and Walsall, leading Scout groups, sports teams, the Duke of Edinburgh award, sacramental preparation and musical performances.
We passionately care for, and work with, our primary partner schools forging close bonds rooted in our faith communities of Streetly, Aldridge, Walsall, Lichfield and Tamworth. We learn lots from them through the process of transition and their taught curriculum’s and continue to grow a closeness in doing the work of God.
The staff at St Francis organise their own Food Bank donating and delivering essentials and treats to those most in need and each year collect to make the Christmas celebrations of those who would otherwise go without, a special celebration.
