Mandela abbeyCBS

On Friday February 12, the Abbey Christian Brothers’ Grammar School, Newry, Northern Ireland, hosted its inaugural Abbey Nelson Mandela Day.

The day centred on an array of events lead by 30 senior students (17-18 years old) aimed at raising much needed monies for local marginalised communities and groups.

The students planned the entire day including sourcing and purchasing special ‘Abbey bandanas’ for the entire community of staff and pupils (1,000 people) and producing and sharing a media clip to explain to the school community why we stand together as a community in solidarity against socially unjust causes.
