Greetings from CAFOD Schools team

A big thank you for joining the CAFOD Dream Team for Harvest Fast Day this year.

The money you raise helps children like Kabery in Bangladesh live out their dreams. Your support really makes a difference. We were excited to hear about how schools have been taking part across England and Wales.

Visit our website to see some of the great ways schools have been joining the CAFOD Dream Team – from holding assemblies and making Dream Team displays, to holding sponsored race relays, fundraising walks, fast day lunches and cake sales. Remember to visit our website for lots of useful and exciting teacher resources.

Best wishes, Gemma Interactive Advent Calendar Our fun interactive advent calendar is back! It’s the perfect way for your class to start each day this December. Click on the numbers for Christmas craft activities, prayerful reflections and to learn about some of the people CAFOD works with.

Advent Liturgy resources

Our children’s liturgy resources for each Sunday in Advent have questions to help the children reflect on the Gospel story. Also included are ideas for prayers, songs and other activities, as well as colouring activities too! These resources could be adapted for assemblies. Universal Children’s Day On November 20th it is Universal Children’s Day.

Encourage your children to find out more about what life is like for other children living in Rwanda, Cambodia and the UK on CAFOD’s website for children, Picture my world. World Gifts Look out for the world gifts catalogue that has recently landed in your school.

World Gifts will delight your friends and family and make a huge difference to people’s lives. Also online are resources, assemblies, powerpoints, and prayers to show how World Gifts are making a difference.
