Mission Day with a difference!

 Last Friday we celebrated Mission Day at school. It was different to how we usually spend it because of Covid19 restrictions. We couldn't celebrate with our families or do any games and shopping. Unfortunately, we were not able to go to Mass either but we did start the day with a beautiful Liturgy under the canopy.

When we came to school we were allowed to come in mufti but we had to bring a gold coin as a donation. Every year our goal for Mission Day is to raise as much money as we can for Holy Angels orphanage in India. Ms Bullot told us that India has 50,000 new Covid19 cases every day. It must be very hard to live there and scary too.

After the Liturgy we came to class and we wrote our Basic Fact-athon. We had to ask friends and family to sponsor us. We brought our lists back to school. We all did very well and now we have to return all the donations to Mrs Thompson. We hope we raise a lot of money.

After morning tea we watched a movie called "The One and Only Ivan" about a gorilla and his friends. Mission Day was fun but different to our usual day but it was for a good cause - Holy Angels.
