CAFOD - Brighten up this Harvest

Our school community has supported CAFOD with their ‘Brighten Up this Harvest’ Day. Members of the CAFOD team led an assembly in school and each year group took part in activities throughout the day to help build a brighter world and make a difference to the lives of others. Children from each year group also brought into class non perishable food items to create hampers that the Chaplaincy Team presented  to the local Broxbourne food bank which always needs our help to support local people who have fallen on hard times. Thank you for your support with these worthy causes.
