GTS pupils help make a difference this Christmas
Once a month Ms Sparrow puts out a plea to staff and students to fill her donation box with goodies such as tins,
cereals and pasta, to donate to Torrington food bank. The idea is to raise awareness of hunger and poverty that can
and does exist locally and it’s not just an issue in other countries. Mrs Mathew’s year 9 food class took up the
challenge and decided to bake mini Christmas cakes. They baked and decorated and wrapped up individual mini
Christmas cakes ready to donate to the food bank. A huge well done to all the pupils and staff that assisted in helping
to make a difference to local people in crisis this Christmas and New Year.
