With a large Filipino element to the school community of Saint Teresa’s Primary, Aspley, the school felt was extra important to work together to help their brothers and sisters in the Philippines at this sad and difficult time.
The Chaplaincy Team, along with the House Captains, organised a liturgy which they led. They also organised a cake sale and a non uniform day, where the children and staff wore red, yellow, blue and white – the colours found in the Philippine flag.
All children have been using the CAFOD prayer in their classrooms and writing prayers for the prayer wall in the school hall.
The efforts of the school community raised £332 for the CAFOD Typhoon Haiyan Appeal and they will continue to pray in school and at home for the people of the Philippines.
