Pray Stop Go
As you know, our school supports many charities such as Mission Together and CAFOD (the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development). Like these charities, we believe that poverty and suffering is not part of God’s plan and that, as a Catholic community, we should do something to help our neighbours, both at home and abroad, who are struggling.
Therefore, as part of our ‘Pray, Stop, Go’ Lenten mission, we challenged our pupils to give it up this Lent – to give up something they like and donate the saved money to help build a better world.
Each ‘House’ in school worked together to raise money for their nominated charity:
Matthew House- Mission Together
Matthew House have chosen mission together, a charity which is children helping children all over the world. Our values are friendship and compassion ans we felt this charity suits or house values perfectly. So far we have raised £256 for Mission Together.
Mark House – CAFOD
Mark House have chosen CAFOD which supports catholic charities working all over the world in places where there is poverty, famine and injustice. So far we have raised £211 for CAFOD.
Luke House – Zoe’s Place
Luke House chose Zoe's Place which is a local charity supporting sick children and their families. It is believed that Luke was a doctor and his gospels are written with sensitivity towards the sick and the suffering. We have raised £364 so far.
John House – Mary’s Meals
John House have chosen Mary's Meals. This charity provides hungry children with one meal every day. This charity was chosen because our core values are to show love to each other and our friends. So far we have raised £422
