In Support of Red Wednesday

This week, we supported the Red Wednesday campaign, with Aid to the Church in Need and Christian Solidarity Worldwide, in which Christians globally stood in solidarity with persecuted Christians and faith minorities who suffer unjustly for their peacefully-held beliefs.

Tutors discussed the meaning of Red Wednesday in tutor time and said a prayer for all those who do not have the freedom to practise their faith. Miss Rees’ UIV tutor group wrote #RedWednesday in their mother tongue and pinned it to a display, demonstrating global support.

Elsewhere in the school, funds were raised from a cake sale, paying £1 to wear (red) home clothes for the day and Lucy, Fleur, Marta and Emily took part in a 24-hour sponsored silence.
