Our Lenten Challenge
We are very proud of our students here at Notre Dame especially as they continue to amaze us with their thoughts and ideas when it comes to charitable work. Throughout the year students work hard at raising monies for a variety of needy causes. This week our little Year 7’s had been baking and selling cakes to raise money for CAFOD’s ‘Big Fish’ campaign. They succeeded in donating over £93 to CAFOD for all their culinary efforts. Next week we will see the ‘Comic Relief’ campaign emblazoned on TV screens throughout the country and Notre Dame will not escape the shenanigans as students and staff prepare to don their aprons and hurl themselves into a baking frenzy whilst competing in Notre Dame’s very own version of GBBO. As well as baking, students will have the opportunity to display their talents at a lunchtime showcase hosted by our Headstudents Ella and Daniel. They will be inviting all talented students to sign up next week (see link below for further information) and the show will happen on Friday in St John's Hall - entry cost 50p. Good luck to all the participants. The winners of the Mascot Competition will also be announced at the event, so there's a lot to look forward to.
All students study RE here in school and VI Formers are no exception and as part of their Core RE lessons during Lent they’ve been looking at very simple things that we can do as a community to help others during (and after) Lent.
The students have made a simple Powerpoint presentation which is currently being shared with our school community via our TV screens across the school site. Click on the attachment (below) to find out what the students are doing.
Good luck to all involved with the Lenten Challenge and thank you in advance for your support.
