Are you a parent with some free days during the week in school term time? Perhaps you have delivered Children’s Liturgy sessions and would like to support young people learn more about CAFOD in a school setting? Are you a retired teacher or grandparent still keen to share your experience and passion?
Mr David Lewis, Head teacher at St Illtyd’s Catholic Primary School in Bonymaen, Swansea welcomed CAFOD in to the whole school assembly on Thursday 6 April where the children were given a “Rough Guide to CAFOD”
What does the D in CAFOD stand for?
Well it’s development. And this was a great opportunity to explain what a development agency is and that development is about supporting people in poor communities to receive basic rights such as food, water, health care and education as well as a way to earn money to support themselves.
During the last week of the spring term, pupils at Archbishop McGrath Catholic High School, Bridgend, joined together to organise a host of Lent events; not only did they have a lot of fun, they raised lots of funds for the Lent appeal.
Throughout the week, many events took place including a bush tucker trial, a sponsored run, bake sales, a movie screening and fishing game. The total for the week is well over £1,700, with the winning form class raising over £450.
