Little did I know...

Posted on May 14th 2020

Darlington Building Society challenged all budding authors to write a story, of no more than 500 words beginning

Little did I know…

Over 300 entries were received, many coming from All Saints students. The winner from the primary and secondary categories would win their height in books plus £500 for the school library!

We are thrilled to congratulate Sally Sheridan on winning herself 5ft of books and thank her for the £500 we will receive for the school. Together with the money we raised on World Book Day we now have £1400 to spend on books once we return.

Sally has agreed we can share the video of her reading – ‘A Random Act of Kindness’ so listen for yourself here.

A few years ago I set a Lenten Challenge, asking students and staff if they thought they could be a RAKtivist?

Sally’s story has reminded me of this challenge so if you have listened ask yourselves during this difficult time, and beyond

Could you be a RAKtivist?
