Before the half term holiday, 10JDE delivered an assembly on St Vincent de Paul.

St Vincent de Paul is primarily recognised for his charity and compassion towards others.

As part of their assembly, 10JDE set a challenge to the other year 10 tutor groups to collect items for the Academy’s food bank, St Edmund’s Larder. Each tutor group was given a box to place in their tutor room and were asked to fill it before half term with food items.

Year 10 rose to the challenge and collected a staggering amount of food for the Larder. These items were delivered on Friday 9th February.

A massive well done to all in 10JDE who helped organise this event and a huge thank you to all year 10 students and tutors who collected food and donated so generously.

St Edmund’s Larder is open for all who need it. Students, staff, parents and carers are invited to donate what they can and to take what they need.

Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere heart, – Acts 2:46
