On 23rd December 2006 the infant pupils of St Martin’s RC Primary School performed a Christmas Nativity in the church. The performance was well attended and enjoyed by parents and members of the local community.
In January 2007 the children were asked to discuss how to spend the money raised from the performance and it was decided that the pupils would buy resources for third world countries. Following whole class discussions, P1 elected to buy a goat and some chickens. P2 decided to purchase a supply of clean water and P3 decided to buy safe water for 50 people and two textbooks. These resources were bought at a cost of £120. The children talked about the benefits to the other children which these gifts would bring.
