Reverse Advent Calendar

Giving back to the community

This Christmas Soaring High participated in a reverse advent calendar.

During assembly, we spoke about making a difference to other people’s lives in our local community at a particularly difficult time of year. We wished to create a sense of giving as a school community, rather than receiving. Each day the children brought in donations of groceries and household items to place in our 24 advent boxes. At the end of term Year 6 packed all the food into crates before our 3 heads of houses delivered the goods to the food bank at the Co-op in Coggeshall.

We were truly overwhelmed with the generosity of the donations and the children said they felt happy to be able to make a difference to others this Christmas.
