When teacher Mark Good invited me in to St Thomas More Primary School in Middlesbrough to collect a cheque last week, I did not know what an interesting and surprising time was ahead of me. During a tour of the whole school I saw all the work the pupils have been engaged in to support worthy causes – including the local Race for Life. It was really interesting and surprising to hear the range of learning about CAFOD’s work the pupils have been engaged in. It was lovely to walk into the Year 6 classroom where the children were learning about Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador. Younger pupils had been learning about children like eight-year-old Eric and his older sister Julienne in Rwanda. Julienne is part of a cooperative where young people work together to earn money. They are also using lots of other CAFOD resources including the Universal Church Topics, so they were all well informed and eager to share their knowledge! They had raised a lot of the funds from a bake sale held in school. Well done to all and keep up the great work!
