The Sixth Form Interact Club reps are running a shoe box appeal as part of their commitment to the school Interact Group and in association with the Lichfield St Chard Rotary.

The students have organised different Houses to collect for different age groups of children and are contacting parents to enlist their support. Every student who contributed will receive 100 House Points.

The following allocations are in place:

Darwin House

Carrie Cain, Assistant Headteacher, said: “Sadly it looks like many of us will not be enjoying the Christmas we usually have but this project is well worth participating in and means on Christmas Day itself children across the globe will have their day brightened by your kindness. We’d be delighted if as many students and families could take part as possible.”
