Kidsgrove students help their community


Students have been sharing the community spirit in Kidsgrove as they continue the good work of their harvest celebrations.

Kidsgrove Secondary School students have been working hard to collate and deliver donations to St Thomas’ foodbank, as well as to over 20 individual families in the local area.

Commenting on the school’s involvement, Head of School Karen Mitchell said: “I am so proud of all the staff and students involved in this project, it is truly heart-warming to see such generosity and spirit in our community.”

A volunteer from the foodbank recently visited the school, to speak to Year 8 students about the inspiring work that volunteering brings.

Utilising whole school assemblies, form time and PSHE lessons, the school which is part of The Shaw Education Trust, is helping students to access a range of volunteer schemes, including in care homes, youth groups and the Salvation Army, plus peer mentoring within school.   

Since the success of their harvest work, the school are now preparing for their forthcoming Operation Christmas Child programme, encouraging members of the community to join them on their mission.

Mrs Mitchell concluded: “We hope more people get involved in this fantastic cause and I look forward to seeing our students future fundraising activities.”
