Students of all ages at Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School will be collecting for CAFOD all week in the run up to Harvest Fast Day on Friday 4 October.

Collection boxes will be out around the school during break and lunchtimes, both students and staff are being challenged to dig deep and raise funds in innovative ways.

The theme this year is 'The Big Share' and CAFOD are asking people to think about the fact that there is enough food in the world to feed everyone but still 925 million people do not have enough to eat.

Bible Quote

“Praise the Lord because he is good.  His faithful love will last forever.”
Psalm 136:1

Word of the Week

Machiavellian (adjective)

Subject which uses this term: English Literature; Drama; History; Politics

Meaning: cunning, scheming, and unscrupulous.

For example: ‘Mrs Lyons is Machiavellian. She manipulates Mrs Johnstone into giving up her baby. She uses Mrs Johnstone’s superstitious nature to ensure she gets what she wants.’

MRS. LYONS: You do know what they say about twins, secretly parted, don’t you?


MRS. LYONS: They say…they say that if either twin learns that he once was a pair, that they shall both immediately die. It means, Mrs. Johnstone, that these brothers shall grow up, unaware of the other’s existence. They shall be raised apart and never, ever told what was once the truth. You won’t tell anyone about this, Mrs. Johnstone, because if you do, you will kill them."
