During the Easter holidays, 10 students and three teachers decided to visit Stockholm in the hope of recreating an ABBA experience! For three days, we visited the places where ABBA performed, as well as some of Stockholm’s famous landmarks. A large proportion of our time was spent posing for photos whilst Fr Andrew (and the ‘artistic directors’, Harry and Calvin) tried to get us to look like ABBA!
Across Lent, the students of 924 carried out a 'Give up and Give Away Lenten appeal'. Through giving up things like chocolate and sweets, the tutor-group managed to raise a fantastic £50. This money funded a special Easter Sunday breakfast in the Don Bosco Ashalayam homes for boys in India.
A very successful night was organised by Tina Wright and Alisa Wickens to raise money for the children of Don Bosco Ashalayam. It gave the students who went out to India last year an opportunity to present their experiences to nearly 200 people.
On 13th February, members of the year 12 Peace and Justice League – Daisy Stoner; Alex Hogan; Sean Holder; Ruari O’Connor and I – went on a trip to the Houses of Parliament with Father Marco, for a CAFOD reception.
During the half-term, a group of Year 10s went to Spain for a religious trip. We mainly went to partake in a famous pilgrimage, however we only did the very last strip because the whole walk is about 6 weeks and some people do more.
