Brilliant Bunting Day at St Mary’s Primary

St marys june 2015 007

With the help of CAFODs inspirational Schools Volunteer Bea Taylor, Years 3, 4 and 5 of St Marys School Swanage took part in a day of activity to think about CAFODs work and the impact of Climate Change. The pupils made paper bunting for their classrooms with the CAFOD strapline and name, with Year 6 making the fabric bunting.

The theme of the action and reflection was What could we lose from God’s world with Climate Change? which with Bea’s fantastic help enabled the children to really think about the impacts climate change has on the planet and those who are affected by it.

Huge thanks to St Marys School Swanage for their amazing support for CAFODs work and huge thanks to our volunteer Bea Taylor for all of her inspirational work.

Amazing response to Nepal Emergency from Cathedral School

IMGP0138

In response to the Nepal Emergency Appeal, pupils from the School Council at Plymouth’s Cathedral School held a cake sale and mufti day, raising the magnificent total of £232.53!

CAFOD and its partners began delivering aid within hours of the first earthquake, and is continuing to work around the clock to provide life-saving aid to homeless and injured families. In coalition with partners in the Caritas network of Catholic aid agencies, food, shelter kits and emergency supplies have been provided to more than 38,000 people so far, and the aim is to reach 175,000 people in the first eight weeks of the response. CAFOD’s specialist team on the ground is providing technical expertise around water, sanitation and hygiene management, as well as in the protection of children and vulnerable adults.

CAFOD’s work is possible thanks to the generosity of Catholics in England and Wales, so congratulations to the Cathedral School pupils for all their hard work and thanks to all who helped and gave!
