6th form Foodbank Drive

I thought I would take the opportunity, as we are conducting ‘Kindness Week’ in school (w/c 11/11), to publically acknowledge the efforts put in by our 6th form students and 6th form tutors for our foodbank drive.  Last term, the 6th  form team came together to co-ordinate a foodbank drive for the month of October.  The 6th form team believe in building the 6th form ethos upon 4 key pillars: intellectual curiosity, academic ambition, empathy and appreciation.  The foodbank drive sought to develop the last two: an empathy for those who struggle and an appreciation of what we have.

The response to the foodbank drive was fantastic. All forms contributed a significant amount to the cause.  On the 31st of October, a convoy of 6th formers, led by Mr McDowell, ventured towards Medway Industrial Park to deliver the donations.  After a few wrong turns, we eventually found the foodbank deposit centre.  Our donations were kindly received by Kevin, a delightful gentleman who volunteers at the foodbank.

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank parents and carers for their support with the foodbank drive.  I believe that the substantial donations will make a difference for those who struggle, particularly as we approach the festive season.
