Yr 13 St Thomas More, Westcliff, Thirst for Change

A busy day at St Thomas More School with volunteers Peter Jones and Joan Risby running various sessions on the Thirst for Change campaign and the Lent water theme.

Activities included making a story board for an advertising campaign (who will forget Hydro Hunk and Wasteful Wayne?) and also making the water filter – details to make your own water filter can be found here >> Students also took the opportunity to complete action cards to David Cameron.

Water is something we take for granted
It helps grow the food we’ve planted

1 in 8 people don’t have clean water
We need to teach people, tell your friends, tell your daughter

1.7 million deaths each year isn’t fair
We need to take our resources and make sure we share

We need to treasure the water that comes from above
Like the Black Eyed Peas said “where is the love?”

So help CAFOD raise some money
and put food and water in a deprived persons tummy

This presentation has taken roughly 20 seconds. This means 3 children have died since we began speaking.

Thank you to all the students who took part in the day and to Joan and Peter for facilitating.
