Food bank assembly - Thankfulness
In this morning assembly, Stuart from Cumbria food bank spoke to our pupils about thankfulness.
We started the assembly by thinking about what we should be thankful for. Our pupils had lots of ideas and it was wonderful to hear them not only mention celebrations but also mention food, family and friends. Staying positive will help to add colour when we experience dark times.
Stuart then shared a story with us about 10 people who were cured of leprosy. Only one who said thank you.
Stuart also spoke about how even when we have negative experiences in life, we should stay thankful for all the positive things we have in life.
The pupils then gave Timmy the tin of tuna some advise. His friend Toby was unwell and feeling sad, this in turn was making Timmy sad. We decided it’d be a good idea to play the thankful game and think about all the positive things he could be thankful for. Stuart also linked this to the foodbank and how people who visit are thankful to the volunteers and for the donations.
