Our first refresher training day for School volunteers is taking place on Thursday 30 January in the Mostyn Room, adjacent to St David’s Metropolitan Cathedral in Cardiff-.
This is a twice yearly opportunity for our team of school volunteers to come together to look at the new resources for Lent 2020 – both the assemblies and workshops that we offer to schools across the Archdiocese.
Our Education volunteer co-ordinator contacts schools each term to promote our school volunteers and invite them to take up our offer of an assembly or workshops. We have an amazing range of resources for schools on offer.
The team does a wonderful job in raising awareness of our work.
We couldn’t make the same impact without the generous gift of their time, their enthusiasm and good humour. Their commitment to CAFOD is inspiring!
This month we are getting ready for Lent 2020. We’ll be focusing on the Amazon rainforest and the problems of deforestation and protecting human rights.
We want to help pupils to understand how CAFOD is working with communities around the world to support people defending their rights. And for children to to see the relationship between taking action and supporting communities overseas.
