Kind-hearted students from St Gregory's Catholic Primary School deliver Easter eggs to children's ward patients at UHCW

CARING students at St Gregory’s Catholic Primary School delivered 84 Easter eggs to patients on the children’s wards at University Hospitals Coventry.

The collection was led by the year five students as part of the school’s St Gregory’s Serves scheme, which has seen each class come up with its own project to benefit the local community during Lent.

The children also made Easter cards to go with the eggs that were given to hospital patients.

Year one students wrote letters to sick or housebound members of the community, while year twos made bird feeders and took part in a local litter pick.

Tiddlers Nursery received a visit from St Gregory’s year three pupils, who read stories to the children before giving them hand-made prayer cards.

Year fours held a clothes collection to recycle, raising money for the Cash for Kids charity while year sixes made afternoon tea for members of the parish at St John Fisher Church.

The children raised money for the tea ingredients, as well as doing an online shop and washing up afterwards.

Early Years children planted a beautiful selection of sunflowers which were given to members of the community.

Associate Principal at St Gregory’s Catholic Primary School, Megan Scullion, said the project had been a lovely way to demonstrate to the children that even small acts of kindness could make a big difference.
