Year 10 Volunteer Day

What an amazing effort!

 

Year 10 certainly rose to the challenge yesterday when they set about helping in the local community.

Working with Salford Rangers at Clifton/ Blackleach Country Parks and the Loopline from Roe green to Walkden.

They litter picked, painted railings, painted sculptures, resurfaced the children’s play areas, filled potholes on paths, you name it they did it!  One Group worked with Salford allotment association improving the Macmillan Cancer garden and community garden areas at Tindall street allotments. Painting sheds/ fences, digging over gardens, planting etc.

 

We received the following comments:

 

"I am a volunteer on the Macmillan allotment at Tindall street  allotments.
Your students worked on our allotment yesterday afternoon painting the shed and fence. Just wanted to say a big thank to you all. They were a credit to your school."

 

"On behalf of Tindall St Allotments I would like to thank the Staff and students for the work that they did for us today. They were a great help and well behaved."

One Group transformed Mesne Lea Primary school gardens and worked like Trojans. St Peters Primary School were so thrilled with the pupils who helped out they said they could come any time.

Our school vegetable garden was transformed and staff commented on how hard the pupils worked. Two groups did D of E activities and were let loose with tents and camp cookers.

Finally, to finish an amazing day our pupils made afternoon tea and entertained grandparents and residents from Beechfield lodge, Heath cottage and the Fountains local care homes. Again the comments were lovely to hear.

 

"I could not praise the pupils enough they were lovely, chatting and they looked after me with cups of coffee, a credit to the school."

 

“On behalf of the residents of Beechfield Lodge I would like to thank you for the lovely welcome the residents and staff received from your staff and students yesterday. The food and service we received was wonderful. The students were very attentive and polite and are a credit to the school.

 

One of our ladies commented 'What a lovely bunch of kids, so polite'

 

We had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and would like to invite staff and students to Beechfield to experience an Afternoon Tea with us.”

  

 

I am really proud of the whole year Group Well done Year 10 you really made a difference. I have never seen so many tired kids but it was all worth it.
