World Cup Book Competition at St Thomas’!

O thank you so much to everyone at St Thomas of Canterbury primary school in Carisbrooke for sharing these fab photos with us from their special CAFOD World Cup Book Competition!   

Earlier this summer, our rather wonderful Education Volunteer, Rosemary Peacock visited the school and gave a special assembly about the World Cup and our partners’ work in Brazil.

Pupils were then each given a country and tasked with finding out as much as they could about it for a special book.   Each country chosen had all been mentioned in past CAFOD assemblies or classroom sessions.

Rosemary told us;

“The books were scored by being awarded up to a maximum of 5 ‘goals’ by the class themselves and then the children did the totalling and worked out the average scores. Sierra Leone and Kenya had to have a penalty shootout before Sierra Leone was deemed the winner of the CAFOD World Cup Book Competition, with Kenya a close second and England not far behind!”

Well done everyone!  A special thanks to Rosemary for all her hard work this year and class teacher Ellen Hicks for all her support & for sharing these photos with us.
