Supporting our community

Post 16 students at St Philip’s have been running a business enterprise cooking lunch for staff on Fridays. As part of this, the group plans and shops on a budget each week, supporting and developing their functional maths and English skills.

They are clearly budgeting well and know how to run a small business and they made £160 in profit! The students decided that given the current climate they wanted to support local people in need by spending the money on goods to donate to their local food bank.

The students spoke to the food bank’s team to ascertain a list of much-needed items. Yesterday they tackled the shops, list in hand and invested their profits in goods for their community. 

We are so proud of our students for taking this selfless and kind decision. They worked so hard to make a profit, and donating this money to those in need is a testament to their wonderful nature.
