Highlights of 2014 days from students:

“All the talkers and leaders were fantastic, getting to know others from Catholic schools was really great”

“The activities we did really got the message through and gave me ideas of what I can do myself”

“Practical activities that I can take back and use”

“I learnt more about the amazing work Caritas does and why social justice is so important”

“That there are so many people in our world suffering from injustice and even though we are far away we can make a difference.


“Varied activities, great speakers, positive experience of the Church for young people”

“Enjoyed the interactivity of the day, being involved in ways that relate to the Caritas challenge and CST. Wonderful day for students to learn and to interact with others from different schools. Presenters and leaders were passionate about what they were doing
