After much hard work and effort making beautiful hampers for those who are most vulnerable at Christmas, it was time to dispatch each and every one into the community and who better to do the job than Santa himself, a little elf and five chosen students.
Santa arrived with a full police escort to help deliver all 30+ hampers that had been kindly put together by every form group in school.
Each hamper was delivered in person by the students along with a cheery rendition of ” We Wish You a Merry Christmas”.
The recipients were all so appreciative of their generous gift that some even shed tears of joy and appreciation.
All of our students who helped deliver the hampers stated how “warm” it made them feel inside seeing how much difference their generosity made.
Thank you to the Wath Safer Neighbourhood Team who kindly gave up their day to help our students dispatch their gifts to the best possible candidates in the most stylish means of transport!
Also another WELL DONE to everyone who helped contribute towards the Christmas Hampers from bows to wrapping paper to teabags and food – you really have made a difference and that is the true spirit of Christmas!
During the course of the week our students have once again been demonstrating their generosity, this time by creating Christmas hampers for the elderly in the community.
Each tutor group has designed and made a hamper in the style of their choice and generously donated food and other gifts which will then be delivered by staff and students before Christmas.
From the Coca-Cola truck to Christmas crackers, a gingerbread house to Santa’s sleigh, the students never fail to impress with their creativity!
Students presented their hampers in some rather festive assemblies which were filled with drama productions, poetry recitals and karaoke carols. This annual event always creates great excitement among the students as well as those in receipt of such a wonderful gift.
Working alongside the Police’s ‘Wath Safer Neighbourhood Team’ students will deliver their hampers to members of the community who live in sheltered accommodation or have been a victim of crime, in the hope that this small gesture can make their Christmas all the more special.
In addition to the gift of giving, a form from every Year group were chosen as their Year winner where they were given a prize for their participation.
The winners were:
Year 7 – 7T (Mrs Rocha’s Form)
Year 8 – 8W (Mrs Brock’s Form)
Year 9 – 9N (Mrs Beevers’ Form)
Year 10 – 10O (Mrs Walsh’s Form)
Year 11 – 11N (Mrs Colman’s Form)
Well done to everyone who took part and for their very generous hamper fillers – you are all a credit to the school!
