Malmesbury pupils’ gifts are so sweet
9:00am Friday 30th November 2012 in News
Pupils at Malmesbury School teamed up this week to deliver heart-warming treats to those affected by the recent flooding.
Students in Years 10, 12 and 13 at Malmesbury School baked cakes on Monday in their Design and Technology lessons.
They produced around 50 plates with nine cakes on each plate, and decorated them with a handmade label saying ‘Sorry to hear you have been flooded, from students at Malmesbury School’.
Headteacher Tim Gilson said: “They were keen volunteers. We have an excellent Home Economics department and thought it would be a nice gesture and it would bring smiles to people’s faces.
“We’re a big fan of cakes at the school.”
Year 7 students walked with teachers into the town and delivered the well-wishing bundles to houses in the affected area with sandbags outside.
The students spent around half an hour in St John Street talking to victims of the floods.
