We held a non-uniform day today for the charity ‘Mustard Seed’.
Mustard Seed is a charity that cares for disabled and abandoned children, mothers in crisis and children and teens with HIV. Their motto is ‘No child should be abandoned twice’.
The charity was founded in 1978 by an Irish priest and provides loving and life long residential care to over 600 children and adults with physical and mental disabilities. The name ‘Mustard Seed’ was chosen to denote the theme of growing from small beginnings. (Matthew 17:20)
This October, two TY students, Aoife and Grace will be travelling to Jamaica with Mustard Seed to do voluntary work in various orphanages for a week.
The non-uniform day is part of their fundraising campaign and they appreciate this support from students in the school. We all wore the Jamaican colours of black, yellow or green. TY Photoshop made some posters for the day.
