Let the Children Live

Miss McGinness, Acting Principal Teacher of RE, organised a vist from George McAleenan of the charity, Let the Children Live.

George spoke to pupils S1, S2 and S4 about the work he does with the street children of Colombia. Pupils were shown the horrendous conditions that children and families live in: the lack of shelter, lack of hygiene, lack of food, problems with gangs and drugs, and even the lack of simple human contact.

During Lent, we hope to raise money for this fantastic charity which aims to provide care and education for the forgotten children of Colombia.
