The primary academy have had a fantastic response so far, with members of staff, pupils and parents coming together to bring in donations and make a real difference to the lives of local people.

St Mary Magdalene’s Reverend Price, who is a regular visitor to the academy, saw the huge quantity of donations already received and thanked everyone involved.

The academy actively encourages everyone to value and respect one another and the environment, and their latest project is exemplary of their mission to be a valued part of the community. They are continuing to accept donations until 1 November, when a special Harvest Assembly will be held. Parents and carers will be invited to come along and see just how successful their big-hearted efforts have been.

The academy aim now is to collect enough food to make a continuous trail around the circumference of their school hall. Whilst they are well on their way to meeting this impressive target, the academy is especially in need of donations of tinned meal items, so is inviting the community to keep giving generously.
