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 a Food Bank in order to support their work with those experiencing challenging circumstances in local areas.
Mr Paul Edwards, Assistant Headteacher, commented, “The students were very keen to get involved and do their bit to help those less fortunate. It was really quite amazing how much food came in and our school Harvest assembly helped us all remember not to take the things we have for granted.”
Year 7 School Council Representative Lilly, 11, added, “It’s nice to be able to help other people, especially those who don’t have much already perhaps. I think our school collection was a really good idea because it makes us look after others, just as our families, friends and teachers look after us.”
