Students contribute to both the local and the wider community and in so doing increase their awareness of the needs of people from different sectors of society. Each year students organise events to raise money for a variety of charities, including; The Catholic Children’s Society, The Alzheimer’s Society, Macmillan Cancer Support, Spear (a local homeless charity) and Red Nose Day

Events

Year 11 – Samaritan’s Purse – Operation Christmas Child

This year, Year 11 chose the Samaritan’s Purse – Operation Christmas Child – for their charity event. The charity asks for donations of shoeboxes filled with gifts for children who have very little.

Back in September, we launched our appeal at assembly and on Tuesday 21st November the charity collected an incredible 262 beautifully wrapped shoeboxes!

Year 11 would like to thank everyone for their support whether they donated a box, brought in extra items for the boxes, helped wrap and check the boxes or bought cakes from last week’s sale to help raise funds so that we could put the final details in place.

Thanks again.
Year 11 and their tutors Mrs Collett and Mrs Stevens
