The Halton/ St Helen’s/Warrington Heat of the CAFOD Cup took place at SS Peter & Paul Catholic College in Widnes on the morning of Wednesday 19th June and it involved 5 schools from Warrington, Halton and St Helen’s LEAs. The five schools that battled it out included:
»St John Fisher Catholic Primary School in Widnes (Cambodia)
» St Bede’s Catholic Primary School in Widnes Team A (El Salvador)
» St Basil’s Catholic Primary School in Widnes (DRC)
»St Bede’s Catholic Primary School in Widnes Team B (Bangladesh)
» St Gerard’s Catholic Primary School in Widnes (Brazil)
» St Paul of the Cross Catholic Junior School in Burtonwood (Ethiopia)
All the schools came up with their own victory dances too! After a nail-biting and fun-filled tournament, the semi–finals saw St Bede’s Team A pitted against St John Fisher and St Bede’s Team B versus St Basil’s. In the end St Bede’s Team A and St Basil’s reached the finals. At the end of the match it was neck and neck and after some tense penalties, St Bede’s Team A were crowned the ‘CAFOD Cup Halton, St Helen’s and Warrington heat winners.’ St Bede’s will now be representing Halton, St Helen’s and Warrington in the CAFOD Cup grand final on 5th July! Every child who took part received a CAFOD Cup medal and a certificate!
Altogether 31 primary schools in Liverpool Archdiocese will be taking part in the CAFOD Cup this June. The winner will be announced on the 5th July, with the winning school winning the CAFOD Cup trophy!!!!
Many thanks and congratulations to all the schools who took part-we hope that you had as much fun as we did!!!!
