IN A SPIN AND GOING FAST

Posted on 25th November 2016 | News

On Thursday 24 November 2016, the whole school community united in a joint fundraising effort to support Concern Worldwide.  Each Year Group selected a fasting activity and sought sponsorship for their efforts. Year 8 pupils fasted from bad attitudes while Year 10 fasted from behaviour points.  Girls in Year 12 gave up make-up and cosmetics for the day and Year 11 went on a ‘digital detox’. Year 9 pupils took to the grounds of the school to do a litter sweep as part of their fast from litter. Year 13 and Year 14 students, along with Miss Burns, Mrs Higgins and the Senior House Master and Mistress for each Pastoral House, took the lead in organising the ‘Go Fast Spin for Syria, Lift for Lebanon’ spinathon.  Staff and students all became involved in what was a high energy day.  St. Mary’s also welcomed a film crew to capture footage of the fundraising event which will be used by Concern Worldwide to promote the work of the charity and encourage future fundraising efforts.
