St Edmund’s College Charity Week raises over £20,000 for “Mary’s Meals”

St Edmund’s College broke all its previous fundraising records by raising £20,260 for Mary’s Meals, a charity which provides a daily meal for chronically poor children in a place oflearning. Our donation will feed 1,457 children for a year. The College’s Charity Week raises money each year for a chosen charity and, over the last five years, we have donated a staggering £94,000 to worthy causes. Students and staff work hard to raise funds through many varied activities held at break and lunch times from Colour Runs, staff Pie Face, cake sales and car washes.

The Headmaster, Mr Paulo Durán, said, “I am so proud of all the students and staff, supported by our parents, who worked tirelessly to raise this amazing amount. Through their efforts so many children will now eat a meal at school every day, something which we take for granted”.

Bishop Hudson Visits St. Mary's Hampstead

St. Mary’s, Hampstead, Welcomes Bishop Nicholas Hudson

We were honoured and privileged to welcome Bishop Nicholas Hudson to St Mary’s School Hampstead on Tuesday 24th January. Bishop Nicholas was ordained Auxiliary Bishop for the Diocese of Westminster in June 2014 and has responsibility for the pastoral care of Central and East London.

The Bishop was particularly impressed that his tour of the School was led by Year 6 pupils and was touched to hear how much they will miss it when they leave at the end of the year. He also enjoyed meeting the School’s new starters in Nursery and hearing about how the children were celebrating Mary Ward week.

Mrs Connor-Earl commented, “We were delighted that Bishop Nicholas visited St Mary’s School this week. The visit was a fantastic opportunity to showcase everyone’s hard work and share news about our new initiatives such as The After School Club. We thank him for supporting St Mary’s School and for the time he dedicated to the pupils and staff. It was a truly memorable and inspiring occasion that the whole School will remember for a long time.”
