SPEECHES: Pupils at St Augustine’s

First published in News

CHILDREN at a Weymouth school have been speaking out for the hungry.

Year 5 children at St Augustine’s Roman Catholic Primary School in Weymouth were set a challenge by CAFOD (Catholic Agency for Overseas Development) education volunteer Bea Taylor to write a speech for the organisation.

CAFOD helps poor and hungry people in developing countries.

The children researched and put together their speeches to read out to their peers. They then discussed the speeches in class and parents were invited to a special assembly where pupils read out what they had written.

The speakers and their co-writers were awarded certificates and prizes from CAFOD including water bottles and stationary.

Mrs Taylor said: “Many thanks to the headteacher Michael Lobo, staff and pupils of St Augustine’s RC Primary School for all their help and support.”

Unfortunately, lots of the aid does not get to those for whom it is intended but gets caught in the sticky fingers of those who administer the aid in UK and politicians and others who are heads of state in the countries where it is sent.
Then there are also 'developing' countries who are able to develop their own nuclear weapons but still receive aid from UK.

If you are referring to India. Foreign Aid of which is about £200m will cease in 2015. India’s Foreign Minister said, “ Aid is the past and trade is the future” As charity should began at home, that amount of money could well build a lot of affordable housing in the UK.
