Year 7 students from Castell Alun High School have dug deep into their pockets in order to celebrate Harvest this year. All tutor groups produced a bumper hamper of groceries that will be distributed to those in need.
The year group decided that this year’s harvest contributions should be given to the Mold Food Bank in order to support their work with those experiencing challenging circumstances in local areas.
Two members of tutor group 7N actually read in front of an assembly of over 1400 people in order to celebrate the event. Jack, 11, from Penyffordd and Phoebe, 12, from Hope, delivered short presentations on the need for each of us to use the gifts we’ve been given to help others. Phoebe commented, “We were a bit nervous to begin with, but we’d practised our pieces and were really proud to be asked to take part in such a big event.” Jack added, “I think our school collection was a really good idea because it helps us to understand how we can all contribute in our own small way to improving the lives of other people.”
Miss Janice Jones, Student Development Manger for Year 7, commented, “The students are always keen to get involved and do their bit to help those less fortunate. We never cease to be amazed at how much food comes in and our school Harvest assembly helped us all remember not to take the things we have for granted.”
