Our school Lent challenge:
This year for Lent, as a school community we are going to take part in the ‘Walk for Water’ Lent challenge.
Watch the national assembly created by CAFOD
In this assembly, find out how even though we are all apart, we are still connected. We’ll travel to a place called Afar in Ethiopia, one of the hottest regions on earth, to meet people who make long journeys to collect water because it is so scarce.
Watch the following video about Abdul and Mohammed who live in the Afar region of Ethiopia. Try to imagine how it would feel to walk 5 hours every day for clean water.
So, let’s walk for water so others do not have to.
Click on the link below to access the instructions to help others by raising money and awareness this Lent.
Also download the water droplet trail template and complete this. Look out for these in your community when you are out for your walk. How many can you spot?
To help raise money and awareness, you could set a target for how far you could walk as a family or set a target for how much money you could raise to help others.
We have also included a helpful calendar, which can allow you to keep track of each day through Lent and provide you with ideas to pray daily during this special time.
Please make sure to send in pictures to your teacher, as we would love to see all the wonderful things you are doing this Lent to support and help others.
If you do donate money directly to CAFOD, please inform school via email@example.com so we can include this in our community total. Alternatively, you could keep your money raised and hand this in to school once we are all back together.
Many thanks for your continuing support,
Staff at St. Mary and St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Primary School
