Option for the Poor and Vulnerable


In the Gospel of Matthew (25:31–46), Jesus describes the last judgment, saying that we will be judged based on how we treat the poorest and most vulnerable members of society. Throughout the Scriptures, Jesus spends time with the sick and outcast, revealing a special love for those most in need. The Catholic social teaching principle Option for the Poor and Vulnerable encourages us to imitate Christ’s love for the poor by working to create a society where the needs of the poor are always considered first.



Yesterday at OLSK we marked World Day of the Poor through child led collective worship and learning in class. Our children were so reverent, respectful and empathetic, truly building the kingdom through CST! ❤️

Year Three focussed on World Day of the Poor today. We began our day with child-led collective worship and then wrote our own psalms in RE.

The whole school have been so generous in donating Christmas presents for the children of the Welcome Group so they have a gift to open on Christmas Day 🧡

In science, Y6 have been learning about nutrition. We used our knowledge to plan meals for a family on a low income. We had to think about keeping the meals healthy but also affordable!

We had a great time with the members of the SVP this morning; coffee in the town! 🥳The Mini Vinnies shared all the plans to support the homeless in our community during the next half term! 🙏💕🙏 Thank you to the staff at Costa for making us so welcome!
