Nine year 9 students recently took part in the Annual Cafod Walk for Water, from Leeds city centre to Kirkstall Abbey. They had to carry buckets of water to show solidarity for people less fortunate than us who do not have access to clean drinking water. Despite a very wet day, the students kept smiling and were a credit to the school. Two even volunteered to participate in the service we held in the Abbey ruins. They were walking alongside students from Holy Family and Mount St Marys. Well done!
This is what the students had to say about their experience on the Cafod Walk for Water.
This is really good as we get to experience how poor people have felt. Although it was raining we still had fun even when we got soaked by Hamza! Overall this helps us understand how the people felt.
When we went to walk for water, it was raining really badly and it was really cold. That didn't stop us however because we knew that it was for a good cause. We did it because many people have to walk for water everyday because they don't have access to clean water. However, they normally go by themselves not matter what the weather. I think we can all agree that we had a great time and experience.
