December 2023 Breaking News...

We Did It!

Together we have managed to fill an amazing 50 Bags of Kindness with lovely Christmas gifts for vulnerable individuals and families in in Milton Keynes.


The Mufti day last half term raised £433, added to the money raised at the Year 5/6 Carols and Readings (£194) and the sale of Foundation Stage Christmas crafts (£137) comes to a grand total of £764 for this term. This means that in time for Christmas, we have achieved our pupils’ chosen aim for this academic year – to pay for a year of hot school dinners for the 40 most deprived children at the Humanitas School in Ghana (costing £745). What a wonderful achievement!


In addition, your response to the appeal from the SVP to support a local family in crisis was amazing – we were able to send numerous bags of beautiful clothes and shoes to each of the children affected. Your generosity is incredible and makes such a difference to so many – I cannot thank you enough. The Christmas spirit is most certainly alive and well at St Bernadette’s!

Fundraising for the Humanitas School 


Throughout this academic year, our aim is to fundraise to enable the Humanitas school to achieve all of the following:

• Art materials - paints, pads, pencil

• Free school meals every day for a year for 40 children who are from families who live in extreme poverty and are unable to provide dinner at home

• Sponsor a teacher


We are hoping to raise £1000 this year, which will cover the costs of the above.

There will be fundraising activities carried out throughout the year across the year groups. Please look out for details of these as the year progresses



MK Can World Record

(MK Foodbank Donations)


Your generosity in donating cans of food to MK Foodbank and other food items has been incredible! They asked us for 350 cans to help break the world record by producing a 10km line of food cans. You provided 800 cans!! Your generosity helped them to smash the world record. More importantly, you have helped to ensure that the Foodbank will be well-stocked throughout the year to help feed some of the most vulnerable individuals and families in Milton Keynes. Special thanks also to Mrs Watkins, Miss Zapotocka, Mrs Rodricks, Mrs Nelta and Mrs Perry who were at Campbell Park for many hours setting out our cans and looking after our section of the line. Thanks also to our Community Mini Vinnies who helped to pack the cans ready for transportation. 


'Because We're Happy'

Our friendships with pupils at the Humanitas School in Ayensuako, Ghana continue to grow and develop. The pupils at Humanitas School have been helping to enrich our curriculum through joint learning projects, whilst our fundraising has supported them in developing their school - most recently supporting the construction of a new library. 

Both schools have had great fun creating our own versions of the Happy Video to share with each other.

The videos can be seen by clicking on the images below.

The first link is St Bernadette's full video.

The second link, via a private Youtube channel, is an amalgamation of St Bernadette's pupils and the Humanitas School pupils  - ENJOY!!!




Our Community Mini Vinnies have been sharing letters with our friends in Humanitas School.
