This year the annual Retreat Day for the Feeder Schools to Chester Catholic High School, St Theresa’s St Winefride, St Clare, St Werburgh and St Columba was held at Wimbold’s Trafford near Chester. The theme this year was the World Cup. We used CAFOD World Cup materials as the basis for the day.
The day began with an assembly which focussed on the links between sport/ football and peace. The 100 year 6 students were divided into 5 groups named after World Cup countries that CAFOD works in. The activities were based on Peace doves, fair or foul (moral questions around football wages) CAFOD World Cup Quiz and an Orienteering Course designed around CAFOD’s work in Brazil. The final group enjoyed playing games. We ended with the World Cup poem and a group photo which you can see above.
