Harvest Refresher day for Schools’ team

Our Fantastic schools’ team came together to learn about the new resources for Harvest Fast Day 2015.

There was lots of laughter and fun when trying out the resources and all had a go at making the Peace Pie and a Conflict cake (below).

We even had raps written and performed (below) on the theme of “alternative to gangs membership”.  Love the multi-coloured wig which was part of the “Brighten up” theme  What a fab performance!

“I had a great time” said Theresa, a newly retired teacher who is planning to volunteer for CAFOD in schools.  “I didn’t know what to expect and there was a lovely atmosphere and everyone was so welcoming”.

Kate who is currently on maternity leave was keen not to miss the update so brought baby Ruben and Tristan along for a short while.  Great to see her!

If you are interested in raising awareness and understanding of the causes of poverty and injustice and to inspire a commitment to lasting change in our schools, we would love to hear from you.
