St Saviour’s Makes a Splash with CAFOD

St Saviours life without taps lent 2016Thank you so much to Ms Bakewell from St Saviour’s Catholic Primary School in Totland, Isle of Wight for sending us a link to the school’s blog where she describes a special visit from our Education Volunteer, Liz Burden.

As Ms Bakewell reports;

“In the morning, the Year 5 and 6’s worked with Liz to find out more about places in the world which are lacking access to clean, safe water.

“To experience some of the difficulties that families face, Liz set up a game for the children to play, where they had to earn enough ‘buckets’ to swap for clean water from the ‘shop-keeper’.  After the activity, the children reflected on what life must be like for people who have to make these decisions about where to save water everyday.

“Liz then led the Year 5’s and 6’s, along with the rest of the school, in an assembly about the ‘Make a Splash’ campaign.

“St Saviour’s are very grateful to Liz for helping them understand more about this important issue.”

O we’re very grateful to you too Ms Bakewell and all the pupils and staff at St Saviour’s for all your support for the appeal!   Thank you so much!

Check out the school blog where you can find more lovely photos from the visit.
