2. Special Character Week 6 Term 1 2022

Special Character Focus: Lent

Lent is getting ready for Easter a bit like Advent is getting ready for Christmas. In Lent it is a time of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Almsgiving is donating money, food or other items to the poor or needy, especially as a spiritual practice. Almsgiving helps us experience giving freely. Caritas helps us focus on Lent and our prayer, fasting and almsgiving. The theme this year is "Called to be Peacemakers" Thank you so much for our school support for Tonga. 

Our Head Boy and Girl and Special Character Leaders are joining the Caritas Justice Chats next week on Tuesday the 15th. Thank you for your commitment and for giving out your time to join this challenge.
