On the 3rd March we led an assembly about almsgiving and fasting. Our school has been doing fundraising for a variety of charities during Lent.
At the end of the assembly we offered everyone a chocolate exchange. Some students generously gave money for their selected charities. Recently many people have been doing charity events such as sponsored silence, cake sales and Cafod Family Fast Day. We are continuing to do this until our Easter holidays.
The school have been praying for the victims of Cyclone Pam and the people of Vanuatu. All monies received from our second Lenten fast day on 27th March will go to the Cafod disaster fund.
It is upsetting because in the last assembly we led we spoke about climate change and now we are seeing it in reality. This disaster has caused terrible destructionb and loss of lives in families, livelihoods and homes.
