PUPILS SUPPORT CHARITIES THROUGH THE ‘YOU CAN HELP’ CAMPAIGN

Pupils who have given their time to support the ‘You Can Help’ campaign, with Mr Malone, Vice Principal, and Mike FitzGerald from Homeless Care Ltd

As Christmas comes around once more, the students of St Simon Stock Catholic School have been helping the less fortunate. For 15 years the school has supported the ‘You Can Help’ campaign, working tirelessly to collect in donations for those in need. However, this year the students of Maidstone’s Catholic secondary school tried to collect in their donations a little differently. Almost everyone can relate to the excitement of opening one window of an Advent calendar each morning in the run up to Christmas, so the students decided it was time to flip this system and give a little each day. Every student was encouraged to bring in either a can, a packet of pasta or toiletries to add to their form’s Reverse Advent Calendar Box. All of these boxes have then been collected and given to the charity to be distributed to those in need over the Christmas holidays.

Students have really been enthusiastic and have once again pulled out all the stops to try and give others a brighter Christmas. Although Christmas is a time for giving presents to our loved ones, the students of St Simon Stock decided that the wider community who need our help are just as important.

Our pupils are very proud of their achievements and we are sure that publicity about their achievements will encourage other people to be just as generous this Christmas, as together we can make a real difference.
