Christmas Boxes for the Salvation Army20/12/16
Today, we welcomed representatives from the Salvation Army into our school in order to receive the donations of food and gifts from students. As part of our drive to become more aware of the community around us, we encouraged tutors groups to produce a Christmas box to be given to the less fortunate in our neighbourhood. This campaign was twofold, gifts and food. This enabled our students to become self-aware as well as charitable during the Christmas period, when the more vulnerable in our society are suffering more than at other times throughout the year.
Christmas boxes were donated from many different students. Some of these even donated large bags of food for families using their own pocket money. Special acknowledgement and thanks should be given to these students along with all others that donated.
