We are excited by the amazing support received from Nursery schools and their wider communities. Also, the incredibly imaginative ways in which Nursery teachers have used Mary’s Meals Campaigns such as the Backpack campaign and aspects of our feeding programme for use as themes/topics for learning.
Can you help? We are looking to grow and develop the resource and exemplars available for Nursery Teachers . If you have used Mary’s Meals as a context for delivering any aspects of learning or have an unique fundraising idea and are willing to share, then let us know and we can add this to this page. It could help and inspire others.
“ At Glenwood Nursery School, parents and children responded with tremendous enthusiasm to our appeal to fill and recycle a backpack. The children were involved in making informed choices and decisions. They became more aware of the needs of children from other cultures and backgrounds. They are the responsible citizens of today who will grow into the responsible citizens of tomorrow.”
Karin Gilhooly, Glenwood Nursery
“The Marys Meals project has had a positive impact on the children at Arthurlie Family Centre Nursery, as they develop the skills for life which are encapsulated in the four capacities of Curriculum for Excellence. They now have a greater understanding of how people in other parts of the world survive.”
Liz Brown, Arthurlie Nursery
