Back to school with CAFOD

Top tips and education resources for the new year
Are you getting ready for a new term in January? Here are our top tips and tools for the new year.
1) Defend the rainforest and its people with CAFOD this Lent
Every minute in the Amazon, an area of rainforest bigger than a football pitch is destroyed. Homes – and lives – are being lost as indigenous people’s rights are ignored. That is why we are standing with them as they defend their lives, their homes and their way of life.
Explore the Amazon this Lent and access our range of online resources for lessons, fundraising, prayer and worship
2) Hold a fun football fundraiser
Join CAFOD’s Lent 2020 campaign and hold a fun football fundraiser to protect people and their land.
Look out for your Lent pack being mailed to your school this January. It's packed with ideas to help children and young people hold a football fundraiser to help communities in the Amazon to defend their land and support the health of the planet!
3) Browse our 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.
