For the last few years the school has been supporting the Salesians in Bethlehem, Israel, who educate and train underprivileged Palestinians so they have the vocational job skills to lead a better life.
This project has been very successful in working with the young and giving them the opportunity to pursue a career in what is a very difficult part of the world with limited job prospects.
For the last two years the Year 7s have raised enough money to sponsor the education of one Palestinian student at the Salesian Technical Institute in Bethlehem. This has equipped him with an education that will vastly improve his life, and we are keen to take on additional students so that we improve the situation of more young Palestinians.
We are looking to get more people supporting the project, by either donating their time or selling items (Christmas gifts made by the Palestinian students) around September time.
This is an exciting project that is making a big difference to those involved. If you would like to help or learn more about it please contact Fr Andrew on firstname.lastname@example.org
