Courageous advocacy

At Bishop Bronescombe, we are courage advocates! This means that we speak out whenever we feel there is an injustice. This could be that we speak out against plastic pollution, or speak out against litter being dropped in our local area; but it also means we speak out against anything that we believe to be unfair.
Courageous advocacy isn't just about speaking out, but also acting upon an injustice too. Our children are very passionate about injustices in the world and want to make a difference within their community, but also in the wider world. 
The children have done lots of things to demonstrate that they are courageous advocates, and as a school, we support lots of charities. 
The national Charities that we support are:
  • Macmillan Hospice care
  • The Children's Society (an annually supported charity as part of our Christingle celebrations with St Luke's church);
  • Sports Relief;
  • Comic Relief;
  • Children in Need;
  • The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

We are also very passionate about making a difference in our local community. The children have been courageous advocates in their local community by:

  • Bringing in food for our Harvest collection for St Austell Foodbank
  • Bringing in presents for the Christmas present appeal for St. Austell Salvation army
  • Performing litter picks in our local area
  • Campaigning against plastic pollution, and reducing the use of single use plastic in school
We have recently developed a link with Virunga Valley Academy in Rwanda and we are excited about the prospect of what we can do to show that we are global courageous advocates too!
