Earlier in the week the children at Paradise were learning about the floods that affected the people of Cumbria and after some of the parents from PPS had been there to help with the clean up operation.
The children felt inspired to help and were concerned that children and families, just like them, would be struggling to live in their own homes due to the devastation caused by the flooding.
So on Thursday 17th December a group of children undertook a very enjoyable and lively 4 hour trip to All Saints CE Primary School in Cockermouth. They met with the children and teachers, performed some nasheeds in a special assembly and delivered boxes of doughnuts as a special end of term treat.
Aishah delivered a speech explaining to the children the meaning of the nasheeds and that the message given is that we are all one big family and should love one another no matter what happens. Ahmad led the children in the nasheeds and the staff and children of All Saints were very impressed.
Meanwhile back in Dewsbury, the other children held a milkshake and nasheed afternoon where they each brought in a charitable donation in order to help the flood effected families in Cumbria.
"Thank you so much to you and your lovely children for travelling to see us. We are looking forward to staying in touch with you and definitely will be looking into accessing some funding so we can visit you and your school! Heartfelt thanks to all your children." All Saints
Both schools are excited about working together in the future.
