Top tips and education resources for the new school year

Are you getting ready to go back to school, or are you planning a new parish programme this September? Here are our top tips and tools for the new academic year.

1) Brighten up this term! 

Harvest Fast Day is on 4 October. Organise a Brighten Up event in your primary or secondary school and get dressed up to support our partner projects around the world. 

2) Order our free global wallplanners 

Order a bright and colourful CAFOD A1 academic year primary or secondary wallplanner to hang in your classroom. 

3) Browse our new collective worship resources

Our pupil-led collective worship resources for Catholic primary schools and secondary schools includes a simple planning template and guide, plus loads more ideas for children and young people to plan their own collective worship.

4) Book a CAFOD visitor

Contact us to find out about our amazing team of trained volunteers who are visiting schools this term to deliver assemblies and workshops.

5) Browse our resources

Take a look at our education webpages to find resources to learn, campaign, pray and fundraise with primary and secondary schools.

This year, make the most of our new Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning CPD, supported by the British Council, to enrich the life of your school. Contact us for information.

7) YouTube best picks
