Prior to the Christmas break Ellie, Cody and Amelia from Year 8 arranged a food collection for the Hope Centre in Derby City Centre. Over three crates of food stuff were donated by staff, students and parents. Our donations were gratefully received by the Hope Centre We were told they will go to vulnerable local people over the Christmas holiday. The students involved were keen to promote the true message behind Christmas – giving not receiving gifts.
The girls have organised several charity events in College and they have a real sense of social justice. They held a bake sale, a raffle and a Christmas decoration sale which raised over £60 for Shelter, helping the homeless at Christmas time.
