At this time of year it is important that we remember the joy of giving, especially to those who have very little. Once again we welcomed Phil Moore into school on behalf of Lancaster Homeless Action. Our students in FE have been busy creating a reverse advent calendar with items donated by parents and carers. Each box was filled with everyday items that many of us take for granted such as soap, toothpaste, shampoo, socks and gloves.

Our students delivered a very moving assembly about their understanding of homelessness and the impact it has on families.

This year staff unanimously decided not to send Christmas cards but donated money to Lancaster Homeless Action. We raised more than £300 which Kevin presented to Phil at the end of the assembly.

Thank you very much to all who contributed at this thought provoking time of year.
