All form groups at All Saints Catholic High School fundraised during Advent to reach a combined total of more than £2,000.
The money was used to buy World Gifts from CAFOD.
World Gifts are a range of alternative charity gifts that help transform the lives of poor communities and families in developing countries.
All Saint Chaplaincy Co-Ordinator, Bernie Healy, said: “There was all sorts of fundraising ideas from the form groups, including sponsored silences, Christmas card making, and much more.
“One form group raised £100 by selling hot chocolate! All the pupils did really well and I am very proud of them.”
The £2,000 allowed the school to buy a range of World Gifts, including school starter packs, water for a family, community toilets and much more.
The fundraising was led by students taking part in the CAFOD Young Leaders programme, which enables students to take the lead on volunteering for CAFOD to make a difference in fighting poverty and injustice.
Young Leaders receive training on different leadership skills such as planning, organisation, communication and presentation, while also learning about CAFOD’s work in developing countries around the world.
Bernie said: “We have more than 20 students on the Young Leaders programme and they are all really proactive and keen to get things done.
“I just let them get on with it because they are brilliant!”
CAFOD representative in Hallam, Jeremy Cain, said: “All Saints have done amazingly well to raise this incredible amount of money, they should all be very proud.
“The World Gifts they have been able to buy will be life-changing for a number of people in need across the world.”
