CAFOD Harvest Fast Week

Brightly Coloured Sweets Sale

Last week, the Chaplains and CAFOD team were busy organising fundraisers for this years' Harvest Fast Day with the theme "brighten up". On Monday and Tuesday, we held a bright coloured sweet sale, selling everything from sherbet to Skittles. On Thursday after school, our Y11 & Sixth Form Sport Leaders organised a Clubbercise class for us, using glow sticks, neon paint and disco lights to create a fantastic atmosphere and encouraging us to "brighten up" and get fit at the same time! On Friday, we had our annual "Brighten Up" day where students were encouraged to come to school wearing bright accessories and makeup. The school had never looked so sparkly! The canteen even put on a Harvest Fast Day Lunch for us of soup and bread to encourage us to take part in the Catholic tradition of fasting and abstinence on this day.

Thanks to everyone who participated and helped us to reach our fundraising total of £401!
