Our REAL class 7X1 have run a foodbank drive this week in school as part of our ‘Can Kindness Change The World?’ project. This was their act of kindness to have an impact on our local community.
They are rightly proud of what they have achieved and have bagged up their haul ready to be taken to one of the local food banks where all of the goods will be given out to families who are struggling to make ends meet just now. The haul included lots of toiletries for both adults and children as well as food items and those all important chocolate treats that some children may not otherwise receive this Easter.
This project has certainly taught our students that a little compassion, determination to make a difference and putting effort in to helping others is extremely worthwhile and that, while we might not have changed the whole world, we might just have made a world of difference to some.
