After learning about how babies in the Middle East are still being born right now in unsafe places, the Leading Worship Group at school prepared an end of term service using material from the charity Embrace the Middle East.
They presented their story in our end of term service in church on Thursday. Throughout the final week of term, three senior students collected small change donated from the children.
