School's project to raise money for CAFOD
4:20pm Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
Pupils from St George’s Catholic VA school were given £10 to invest with the aim of making as much money as possible.
The students’ entrepreneurial know-how will raise vital funds that will enable families in Africa, Asia and Latin America to use their own talents to improve their lives.
The pupils’ ideas included running a talent competition, football tournament, fishing competition, sponsored ‘onesie’ day and a three- man triathlon as well as selling sweets, candy floss and their own artwork.
The idea is all part of the CAFOD scheme – Harvest of Talents that reminds students of the parable of talents where gifts and skills can be used for the good of others.
RE Teacher, Ms Anne-Marie Lee-Cann said: “We hope students will gain better knowledge of how poverty affects lives and be inspired to take action against poverty.”
