Post 16 students at March’s Neale Wade Academy will be helping vulnerable families at Christmas after putting together festive hampers for March Food Bank.
Twelve form classes in Years 12 and 13 put their artistic skills into action and created 12 hampers as part of their termly ‘form time challenge’. The hamper designs included Santa’s Sleigh with all of the reindeers, a giant food-filled snowman, Hansel and Gretel’s cottage and a replica of the Tardis from Dr Who. All of the hampers were packed with essential items that are desperately needed to support the March Food Bank at this time of year. Dr Carole Spibey, the academy’s assistant principal and head of Post 16, said: “The students fully engaged with this activity knowing that they are helping support the people in their own community.
“The effort that they put in is a real credit to them.” The students are pictured with the hampers they made, along with staff and academy principal Jason Wing (front). Photo: SUPPLIED
