Cafod Assembly

During assembly on Monday, ks2 were visited by Mr Scully, from CAFOD.

He told a true story about a lady called Florence and her family who live in a beautiful country called Zambia. They were very poor.  Florence’s husband had died in the mines and Florence’s neighbours had to help her to buy what she needed.

With tools from CAFOD, one day Florence’s nephew dug a hole into which Florence put some small fish, also given by CAFOD.

Mr Scully ended his assembly by leading a fun fish-hooking game for everyone.

By the end of the assembly, the children in KS2 realised what an important job CAFOD does and are looking forward to donating what they can this Lent to help others like Florence to live happily and independently.
