CAFOD- Sister Eleanor visits St Benedict’s

On Wednesday, Scholastica had a visit from Sister Eleanor. She told us all about ‘CAFOD’ and the refugees. She told us a story about us having to leave our homes with nothing. She gave us an activity to choose six items and leave some behind. The first item we had to loose was the heaviest item. The second was to give up the most expensive and then something that was valuable to us. Finally, we had to get rid of everything that would have been destroyed by water on the boat we were travelling on. We eventually got to safety in the refugee camp. At the end of the session we said some prayers for the refugees and people who are less fortunate than ourselves.

Scholastica's Prayer Service

On Friday 28th September, Scholastica walked to St Benedict's Church to share a prayer service with the local parish.  As we have been learning about the Creation and studying Genesis, we decided to retell this story.  We also sang "Who Put the Colours in the Rainbow," which is one of Miss Lockton's favourite songs from when she was at primary school.
