STUDENTS at St Bede’s Catholic Middle School donned brightly coloured socks last week as a fund-raiser for Syrian Refugees.

The youngsters were able to tuck their tights or uniform trousers into colourful socks on Friday (October 2), in return for a £1 donation, in line with the school’s ‘Brighten up with this harvest’ theme.

A representative from CAFOD – the official Catholic aid agency for England and Wales – spoke to the children about the plight of Syrian refuges during key stage assemblies earlier in the week.

Pupils were also given the opportunity to pray and reflect on the suffering that these refugees are experiencing during a Year Seven reflection liturgy and at form time.
