On the Wednesday before school closed for Christmas, Year 11 students took twelve rucksacks down to the YMCA in Birkenhead, along with five more holdalls of warm clothing to donate towards helping the homeless.
In addition to preparing for their mock examinations, students in Miss Lawrie’s form have been busy fundraising over the last few weeks. Staff and students have donated clothes, blankets and other essentials – as well as money – to the appeal. Leftover money was used to buy food for Charles Thompson’s Mission in Birkenhead, which is providing Christmas dinner for the homeless and elderly.
Miss Lawrie said: “I must say a massive ‘well done’ to Lauren Barnes, Olivia Gartland, Jasmine Luton and Shauna Clarke for their hard work and efforts. They have been a credit to the school. When the students went by minibus to drop off their collection of rucksacks at Birkenhead YMCA, the welcome they received was overwhelming.”
Mr Taylor added: “Moments like these are truly special and cannot be taught; they have to be experienced.”
