Breaking the Cycle of Poverty to Build Peace

Lasallian month of peace took place between 21st Sept until 21st October. This years theme was Breaking the Cycle of Poverty to Build Peace. We decided to run a campaign in school called Can you Be Bothered?

A competition between each tutor group took place to see which group brought in the most cans of food.  These cans of food were to be donated to a local food bank to help those most in need.

It was a hugely successful campaign and we collected over 150 cans of food.  It was a tight competition with 3 O Sullivan beating 3 Taylor to win.  Students were extremely generous and made more than one contribution.

CCCrosscare, a local Dublin food bank, were thrilled to accept out schools donation.

It was Beneavin’s way of trying to break the cycle of poverty in our local area. it was a simple but effective campaign and fairplay to all involved, especially our Winners, 3 O Sullivan.
