Love, luck and friendship was in the air this week as Sixth Form students delivered hundreds of roses to unsuspecting students and staff throughout Writhlington.
Every year, a team of Sixth Formers gather together to help spread the joy of St Valentine in a bid to raise money for charity.
Year 13 student, Anna Lee commented:
‘It is a great time of year, students from all year groups come to us in the Atrium to order their flowers and chocolates for delivery. There is an amazing atmosphere and it’s really lovely to see the reactions on their faces when you deliver to class – it’s kind of magical!’
This year students have chosen to raise money for the International Citizenship Service. The charity runs a development programme that brings together young people from the UK and developing countries to volunteer in some of the poorest communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Head of Sixth Form, Mark Bridges said:
‘ It is absolutely amazing to see all the students and staff come together. This is a student led activity and I am so proud of all the students involved for their organisation and delivery of this really fantastic tradition. This year I have reached a new record, receiving 6 roses!’
