Rebecca Spiers from the Cancer Fund for Children has received a cheque from pupils of Our Lady of Lourdes School following the end of a very special project working with four local primary schools.
The host school along with St Joseph’s Primary, Dunloy, St Patrick’s Primary, Rasharkin, St Brigid’s Primary, Cloughmills and St Patrick’s Primary, Loughguile joined forces to raise money for this charity. The inititive called “Learning, Sharing and Caring” culminated in an action-packed fun day where pupils were immersed in a series of cross curricular workshops highlighting children’s human rights. The children built homeless shelters, sampled emergency food rations, filtered water, protected an egg and enjoyed play.
