“Out of a mountain of despair a stone of hope” came the famous words of Martin Luther King, which provided the inspiration for the gospel theme this week of having faith. Having faith, even just a little we are told in Luke’s Gospel will enable the followers of Jesus to do wondrous things. Members of 8F took the message of the gospel literally. Each member was given the challenge this week to collect one toiletry item in order to donate to the homeless charity – Streetlife. Streetlife works with many vulnerable young people aged 16-25 in Blackpool providing emergency accommodation and a wide range of support. Pictured above are members of 8F with their Form Tutor Mr Navesey and Miss Smith our Lead Chaplain receiving the toiletry items on Streetlife’s behalf.
On 5th October Jamie-Leigh, Anna and Jenna took part in the Blackpool Bocca Championships at Blackpool 6th Form College. This was an event open to both primary and secondary students and there were 17 schools who took part in total. The girls played really well showing great team work and sportsmanship. They finished in 3rd place overall. Well done girls!
As part of a school wide charity drive 7F have done their part by doing a fantastic job of donating food and toiletries to the Street Life Appeal. Street Life is a homeless shelter in Blackpool looking after homeless people aged 16 to 25. It is great to see our pupils putting others before themselves during our 'Brighten up the Harvest' Week.
