CAFOD’s Assembly

Thursday, 22 April 2021

The assembly read to share!

On Thursday 22nd April the children took part in CAFOD’s Eyes of the World National Assembly.

The assembly was all about the issue that the climate is in crisis and how affects us all. But it is the poorest communities who are suffering the most. The eyes of the world are on us this year as Britain hosts world leaders for the United Nations’ climate change talks – COP26.

The children found the assembly extremely interesting and are keen to do all they can to help!

CAFOD Fast Day

Friday, 26 March 2021

Children’s reflections

On Friday 26th March we took part in CAFOD Family Fast Day. The official day was during lock-down, so we decided to make today our CAFOD fast day! Today the children brought in their pennies to donate to CAFOD – Giving Alms and fasted their playtime snack to understand what it feels like to be a little bit hungry for a short time. Well done everyone!
