For the past few weeks, St Edward’s students have been busy, with the aid of Mr Foley, Mrs Pope and Mrs Watson, creating 1060 Christmas cards and Christmas decorations for NHS workers to say thank you for their hard work over this past year, especially with the challenges that the pandemic has brought.

From Year 7 to Upper Sixth, students have coloured and painted intricate designs on Christmas themed wooden shapes created by Mr Foley and the Design Department – from snowmen to sleighs, angels and trees! Students have spent considerable time perfecting their cards, filling them with notes of gratitude, thanks and well wishes to members of NHS staff who have worked tirelessly, showing amazing dedication to our communities.

On Tuesday, we were delighted to welcome the Senior Fundraiser for the Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals Charity, Karen Organ, to School when she came to collect the items.

This has been an incredible opportunity for our students to display their gratitude on behalf of our school community and we are sure that their efforts will bring a smile to many faces this Christmas. Thank you to Mrs Watson, Mrs Pope and Mr Foley for organising this fantastic project.
