Meet Noah - St John's sponsored child...
Noah is a triplet from eastern Uganda. His mother was too ill with HIV/AIDS to care for him and his siblings. Authorities requested Watoto Child Care Ministries to take the triplets into their care. Loving staff and volunteers at Baby Watoto Home took little Noah and his brothers under their wings and tended their malnourished bodies; unfortunately, one of Noah's brothers passed away. With proper attention, Noah soon was back to good health.
After a few months, Noah graduated to a Watoto Home in a Watoto Village, where a devoted housemother and Watoto brothers and sisters made him feel welcome. Noah's housemother showers him with love and care, giving him all the attention he needs. Noah enjoys a quality education at the Watoto School. He has learned to help mama with the chores; he helps pick the compound. in his free time, he enjoys playing soccer. Noah like to eat matooke and groundnut sauce.
On Sundays, Mama takes Noah to the Watoto Church, where the whole family receives spiritual nourishment. Please pray for him to grow in the knowledge and love of the Lord.

Thank you from the Watoto Choir...
webale (Thank you!)
May we take this opportunity to say a big thank you from all of us at the UK Watoto office for hosting the choir. We hope and pray that you were totally blessed by the children who are able to minister to you from a heart of God. The greatest lesson we can all take from these orphan children is that no matter what struggles we go through there is a hope in knowing that God’s desire is to be a loving Father to us all, we are no longer slaves to fear.
Thank you for your donations and sponsorships, we pray your seed will become fruitful and you will be blessed abundantly. If you are interested in visiting the Watoto children in Uganda please do not hesitate to get in touch as we are now planning the next trip.
Until then God bless and please share this ‘thank you’ video with everyone!

Water Aid June 2015
Our school would like your support in raising money for the charity Water Aid. All over the world people are suffering and are trapped in a cycle of poverty and disease. This is caused by water that is not safe to use and poor sanitation. Water Aid are working with communities to provide clean water. Due to the sheer scale of the crisis, they need all the help they can get. We would like to help make a difference with such a global problem.
Today is our collection day for your RAG BAGS - please drop off at the school this morning.
Your help is very much appreciated.

Walsall North Food Bank
On Thursday 18th September the pupils were invited to bring in an item for the Food bank (Walsall North) and in exchange they were allowed to come to school dressed out of uniform. We were overwhelmed by the generosity of the much-needed items of food donated. Please see the ‘thank you’ letter received.
We have since had another 'Mufti Day' (just before Christmas) when we invited the children once again to donate their gifts to the food bank and in exchange they were then allowed to come dressed out of uniform. Once again we were inundated.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR WONDERFUL SUPPORT
