As we approach the Christmas holiday period, it is so good to see our pupils involved in fundraising for those who are less fortunate than themselves. The Santa Appeal is something of an institution at Brynteg and it offers form groups the opportunity to come up with ‘wild and wacky’ ideas to raise money in order to buy presents for other children in the Bridgend area.
Anyone who says that the youth of today don’t care about others needs to spend a lunchtime in our school at the moment. If they do, they will see pupils of all ages going about their business, trying to raise as much money as possible from the ventures. Already we have seen activities such as:
Guess the Baby
I’m a teacher get me out of here
Hot chocolate, sweet stalls
A Christmas Fayre
Cycling the distance from Bridgend to Cardiff in the upper school foyer
Teachers being custard ‘pied’
and much, much more.
The actions of our pupils will certainly brighten up the lives of those who are less fortunate than themselves. They certainly are outstanding examples of caring, compassionate citizens and I am so proud of them all!
The photo of the week shows some of our amazing sixth form pupils who really are a fantastic advertisement for our school.
Thank you for your support.
