Our Young Ambassadores for Sport in Lourdes Secondary are inviting all pupils to take part in a “Santa Dash” on Friday 12th December around the school.
The ‘Santa Dash’ is a fundraising event for the Brick-by-Brick appeal. Our aim is for every pupil to complete a short walk, jog or run and raise donations for our chosen charity.
There are many ways to take part:
• Buy a Santa hat for £2 to wear whilst taking part.
• Any pupil who raises £5 or more will be given the Santa hat for free.
• Pupils can wear their own Santa hat and make a donation on the day to participate.
All pupils are asked to wear a red top (no football tops). If your child wishes to get sponsored, please complete the attached form and return to the school with all sponsorship money on or before Friday 12th December.

During Fairtrade Fortnight, we received the good news that after submitting evidence of our various Citizenship themed activities, Lourdes Secondary had successfully renewed our Fairtrade School status!
Once again, a number of events took place in Lourdes Secondary during Fairtrade Fortnight 2013:
The Fairtrade Tuck Shop reappeared during several lunchtimes, selling a range of chocolate and fruit juice. With the help of members of the Eco School Committee and the Justice & Peace Group, almost £215 was raised to help support the producers and their families in Developing Countries; thanks to – Francesca Woulfe, Christie Jordan, Alannah Pollock and Mehrunisa Khan of S5, Sybaris Ali and Andrew Quinn of S6 for their help.
The Fairtrade Big Brew saw over 50 staff enjoy a tea and coffee morning on Friday 8th of March where there were also Fairtrade biscuits and a raffle of Fairtrade products. As a result of this event, a cheque for £100 was sent to SCIAF.
There is a non-uniform day on Thursday 20 December. Pupils will be asked to contribute £1 for the ‘privilege’ of not wearing their uniform and all money raised will go towards the parcels for the elderly.
