Reverse Advent Calendar


Our amazingly generous students and staff got involved in a reverse Advent Calendar Challenge to help families and support Barrow Foodbank. The way it worked is that each day a student brought in an item for the food bank to go in their form groups advent box, that student then gets to have the advent chocolate from their form calendar.

As the school term ends on December 16, our students doubled up on the days in the run up to the Christmas holidays, with prizes give to the form collecting the most items.

All the food was placed together to see how much has been collected and to delivered to Barrow Foodbank at Abbey Road Methodist Church.

In January, we received the most AMAZING news from the Barrow Foodbank. Our Christmas collection provided 1017 meals!!!!!!! 

Well done to everyone who took part, this is a huge achievement and you should all be very proud!
