The Catholic School of St Gregory The Great Believe and Achieve

Go Giving

How can you make a difference?
The acts that make a difference can be as big as you like or they can be small gestures that make all the difference. As a school, we would like to make a significant link with our Catholic ethos when carrying out our deeds to make a difference.


Many deeds can be linked with the corporal works of Mercy, so here are a few ideas (but you will have many others we’re sure) of what you could do:


  • Clothe the naked– take unwanted clothes to a charity shop.
  • Feed the hungry– visit a homeless shelter or give donations to an SVP box in the entrance hall.
  • Make a meal and invite a neighbour for dinner. The elderly would be particularly grateful for your company.
  • Donate your pocket money to a charity of your choice.
  • Wash someone else’s car.
  • Take someone else’s dog for a walk.
  • Spend time talking to an elderly or sick person.
  • Buy someone a bunch of flowers to say thank you or cheer them up.
  • Pay people compliments.
  • Volunteer for a charity/ organisation for a day.
  • Do an extra favour for someone.
  • Collect stuffed animals or toys from family members, friends, and neighbours and donate them to an organization that helps children.
  • Read or play games with the elderly– visit a nursing/ retirement home.
  • Write a letter to a relative.


Black Lives Matter

The Black Lives Matter Cheltenham Peaceful Protest took place in Cheltenham's Pittville Park this week (June 8th) as part of the global outpouring of anger which has followed the killing of a black man by white police officers in America.  


Black Lives Matter protesters were blown away by our very own Y2 student 7-year-old protester and speaker at the rally. Nylah, who was born in Uganda, spoke to the crowd, telling them she wanted to grow up to be an actor, singer, dancer, and rapper. She also read a poem speaking of black pride to the cheering crowd.  Watch her poem HERE
