St Margaret’s High School is a school that is taken part in Lenten Charities. We interviewd one of the teachers, Mr Quinn (Principle Teacher of R.E) who organises a lot for Lenten Charities to find out what was happening this year. He told us on the 27th of March 1st and 2nd year pupils will take part in a 12 hour fast for Mary’s Meals (a charity that provieds food the sick and elderly) S3-6 will take part in a 24hr fast.
We asked him other fun stuff that he had planned to help raise money. On the 30th of March the school has organised a trip to Airspace in East Kilbride, a large trampoline zone. The money that is raised will then go to Strathcarron Hospice. In June there will be a Staff Karaoke and the money that is raised for that will go to SCIAF. The school have been raising money for Lenten Charities for the last 33 years. Mr Quinn told us “We must put faith into action, actions speak louder than words”.
