Sixth formers from Farnborough Hill, St Anne’s, Christ the King, St Joseph’s College and Salesians gathered at Farnborough Hill school for their second day of training as part of the CAFOD Young Leadership programme.
The students spent the day looking at communication and presentation skills whilst sharing some of the activities they’ve already been involved in back at school and planning some of the activities that they will do this term.
Students from Farnborough Hill gave Harvest fast day assemblies and were involved in the Harvest festival last term and plan to organise a staff talent show this term to raise money for Lent fast day. At St Anne’s last term they were involved in a reflection day on the environment for Year 8 pupils and this term they are planning to lead assemblies for the whole school and set up a CAFOD display board. In the Isle of Wight students from Christ the King school are planning assemblies on Lent fast day for each year group and hope to fund raise as well.
During Advent students from St Joseph’s College encouraged other pupils to fill in message of hope cards for refugees at a special reflection which featured the Lampedusa cross and they also raised money for the hurricane Matthew appeal at a music concert. This term they are hoping to fund raise for Lent fast day by selling pancakes on Shrove Tuesday. At Salesians last term the students led Harvest fast day assemblies for each year group and during Lent they are planning a variety of fish themed fund raising events such as film nights and with fishy snacks.
Many thanks to all the students and to their teaches for their support and we look forward to hearing about their fund raising activities this term.
