Food Parcels – students in Year 10 can take part in the voluntary work scheme whereby they build-up hours doing various activities that will benefit the community. The aim is to enhance the students’ personal statement and also to develop their empathy.
On a monthly basis we visit Frontline church, Wavertree Food Bank. The church takes in tinned food and the students go over and pack up a food parcel that will feed an average family for three days.
They are taught how the family get the food parcel and what foods to include.
This type of work will really enrich my CV, it will help me stand out from other people applying for university places and jobs.
I was shocked that so many people in our own city are in poverty, but also proud that we are doing something to help them.
