Food Drive 2015
Monday 30th November - Thursday 10th December
We are very proud to announce that the students at HAM pulled together and showed a huge amount of generosity and Christmas spirit on the build up to the festive period this year by raising an amazing 681kg of food for Pollards Hill food bank.
A couple of weeks ago we met the Reverend Gerry Stanton from the Methodist Church in Pollard’s Hill where the food back is based. He showed us around and explained the operational side of the food back and how it serves people of the local community. Jeremiah, Rohan and Ricardo were genuinely humbled by the truth behind the amount of people who struggle to afford food and were determined to motivate the rest of the school community to make this year a bumper success.
A massive thank you must go out to all staff and students who took an active part in contributing towards this very worthwhile cause, you will all be making a difference this Christmas.
We must also thank the team of sixth formers who worked hard behind the scenes to ensure the food was collected from tutor groups each day, weighed and labelled. You all showed tremendous commitment, organisation and dedication to this project. A special thank you to the following students who came in on their day off to help load the van and deliver the food:
Karim Lopez, Ricardo Da Costa, Jeremiah Okyere, Abenaa Johnson, Zulaiha Hansen,
Abdi Mo Bashir, Reece Ferreira, Niba Dosso
Our Faculty results were as follows:
Yellow Faculty: 181kg
Green Faculty: 169.5kg
Blue Faculty: 136kg
