Caritas Fun Run/Walk (Issue 4 2018)
Written on the 22 March 2018
Last Friday students from the campuses of both Marymount and the Middle School supported the Caritas Fun Run/Walk which involved Year 5 students from our Parish Partnership schools.
Hundreds of children from St Martin de Porres, St Bernadette's, St Teresa's Brighton, Stella Maris, St Anthony's, Our Lady of Grace and Christ the King walked from Marymount to Glenelg South and back. Sacred Heart boys and Marymount girls worked together in small groups at water stations along the route to makes sure the children were well hydrated, safe and, most importantly, having fun. After their physical workout students enjoyed a sausage from the BBQ and again, the Middle boys and Marymount girls kept the children busy playing lunchtime games.
"I enjoyed running around, exercising and watching the little kids running and raising money was inspiring"
"I enjoyed being able to experience what people have to go through everyday just to get water or to walk to school."
"I got to be on tomato sauce at the BBQ. I enjoyed drowning people's sausages and making people laugh"
"It was fun helping the Year 5s and meeting new people."
Thanks to the Youth Ministers Dylan and Sara who organised this event and who supported and encouraged the collaboration of all these Catholic schools. Our sense of Family Spirit is truly alive in these great events.
