During a recent Missio Scotland “Crazy Hair Day” the boys and girls from St Joseph’s Primary School in Faifley, West Dunbartonshire, were ‘Children Helping Children’. The school held a ‘Crazy Hair’ day and invited Sr Stacey from Missio Scotland to an Assembly to talk about the school that will be built in Zambia with the pupil’s help.
As part of our their Pope Francis Faith Award, Primary 6 and 7 children sold scones and biscuits which had baked previously within Food Technology. Their biscuits were iced in the colours of the continents to reflect the missionary Rosary and encourage pupils to think of children in other countries who will be helped by these donations.
During an assembly pupils prayed and showed their love for children who are growing up in very different circumstances. Taking part in the double action of prayer and sharing invites children to support the spiritual and physical well being of other children through wonderful projects providing education, food, shelter and healthcare. St Joseph’s pupils raised £235 through their Crazy Hair Day and they hope to add to this amount through their class Missio boxes.
