In RE today, the children learnt all about a very inspirational person – Thomas John Barnardo. Born in Dublin in 1845, Barnardo moved to London to train as a doctor, and he was shocked to find children living in terrible conditions, with no access to education. As a result, he set up a ‘ragged school’ where children could get a free basic education. He completely abandoned his medical training and decided to devote his life to helping children living in poverty.
Barnardo believed that every child deserved the best possible start to life, whatever their background. This philosophy still guides the charity today! This led to us having some brilliant discussions about how important it is to be kind to people, particularly those who are vulnerable and need support.
Mozart have had another fantastic week, so well done everyone! I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
