There’s was a lot of laughter and excitement in the air at St David’s College last week thanks to lovely Spring sunshine and six enterprising pupils.
BTEC Business Studies pupils Louis, Luke, Amelia, Elen, Esi, and Jasper wanted to do something a little different with the social enterprise element of their course and decided they’d like to raise money for a humanitarian crisis appeal.
Last Tuesday they organised an incredibly successful bake sale-raising £401.
“My grandmother made cupcakes and cookies, my mum a lemon drizzle cake and I made loads of brownies with my group,” said Louis.
He continued: “So many people got involved, Mr Pettitt’s mother-in-law even made four Bara Brith loaves!
“We sold so many cakes and drinks as well, it was really fantastic and we’d like to thank all the parents who baked for us.”
On Wednesday the group organised a football tournament and managed to pull together eight teams-including two sixth form teams, one made up of PE staff, a teachers’ team and four other pupil teams.
Louis said: “It really was just a fantastic day, the weather was amazing and it was just great to be able to sit back and see both teachers and pupils enjoy themselves, we’ve all been through so much with Covid.
“Luke Jones’s team won the tournament, but it wasn’t just about the football we had music blasting and ice creams were enjoyed on the pitch.”
The day raised £360 towards the humanitarian crisis appeal they have chosen.
The fun didn’t stop there. On Friday night Louis and his gang organised a movie night for boarders in the Assembly Hall.
The hall was decorated, and popcorn and drinks were enjoyed. The movie chosen was Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame.
All in all, it was brilliant work by the business students - we’d like to congratulate them and the hundreds of pounds they have raised. Also, to Mr Turner, Mr Davis and Mr Cogger for helping to organise all the events.
