Cardinal Newman Catholic School students come together for International Women’s Day
As part of this international Ecumenical day, students and staff came together in the chapel for one hour of prayer, which was focused on the plight of women refugees and their children.
Girls from every year group in the school came together to hear readings and say prayers. During the service, students tied strips of white cloth below the statue of Our Lady to identify their call for peace in the world.
The statue and the white strips will remain present on the sanctuary this week, as part of the work students will be covering for International Women's Day on Wednesday 8th March.
