Today was a Feel Good Friday, with the theme of Feeling Charitable.
As a school community, we collected a whopping 495kg of food which was donated to Instant Neighbour’s Food Bank. The deserving north-east charity provides emergency food parcels to those in need.
In addition, our S3 pupils took part in a Charity Fair as part of The Youth Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) which has been run in the school since its inception with the Wood Foundation in 2008.
Each year, S3 pupils engage with a local charity and attempt to win £3,000 (funded by the Wood Foundation) for that charity. Today, our pupils met representatives from local charities including Mental Health Aberdeen, Aberdeen Cyrenians, and Calico. It was great to catch up with former staff and pupils who support the charities!
Working in groups, 15 teams will create a pitches to be presented on 20 March with the aim of winning the £3,000 grant for their chosen charity.
Thank you for your generosity and making this Feel Good Friday so special.
