Since Christmas 2014, when Mr Stanton and two students who are currently members of our sixth form visited the Hope Church Food Bank in Rotherham, Wales High School has done several food donations for them, which have amounted to us raising three quarters of a tonne of food – and even got the chance to talk about it on BBC Radio Sheffield!
For families who need to use the food banks, imaginably, Christmas is one of the toughest times of the year, in terms of being able to provide and put food on the table. Wales High School are once again doing another food collection, to help the food bank give to people in the community over this tricky period.
A letter has been sent home to every student regarding this, and from the 28th November 2016, trolleys will be situated around school, for students to bring in food to go to the food bank. Information will also be going out to students during their year group assemblies and active tutorials.
A trolley will be situated in pupil reception in the blue seating area, and visitor reception, so if any members of the public would like to come in and donate too, that would be great!
As always, with anything we do, the response from everyone at Wales High School, be that the staff; students; or indeed parents, has been absolutely impeccable for the previous collections we have done. Please offer your support to this cause, and do all you can to help, and aid Wales High School in giving as much as we can to our community, and keep our thriving reputation going.
Mr Stanton, Liam Blackwell and Brandon Leo (Sixth Form)
