Students Festive Generosity
A high school in Woodbridge has demonstrated the spirit of Christmas with its annual display of generosity.
Every tutor group at Farlingaye High School made a decorative Christmas hamper that they filled with food and treats. The creations took on many different forms and ranged from festive fireplaces to reindeer and sleighs. The hampers were displayed for the whole school to see and they were judged on their creativity and their contents. Winning tutor groups were rewarded for their imaginative displays.
Students bring in items to put in the hampers and they are distributed to local charities, where they are gratefully received. The children at the Lighthouse Women’s Refuge particularly enjoy the fun designs. Hampers were also donated to:
Suffolk Refugee Support; FIND (Families in Need); Selig (Ipswich Night Shelter); Leading Lives; Home-start; St John’s Church and St Mary’s Church – for those in need/isolated in the community
This activity has been a tradition at Farlingaye annually for several years. The end of term would not be the same without this event. Students and staff embrace the true meaning of Christmas, thinking of others, whilst enjoying themselves and having fun.
