Plymouth pupils find out about homelessness
PUPILS at an Estover school took the chance to learn about what it means to be homeless during the winter months and what a local charity offers those in need.
Students Tor Bridge High School invited the chief executive of the Shekinah Mission into the school as part of an educational ‘Big Give’ day.
During the day there was no normal lessons.
Each tutor group had the opportunity to decide how they spent the day, focussing on giving.

Teacher, Kate Payne, said: “John Hamblin, the chief executive of the Shekinah Mission came in to give our tutor group a talk about the various issues that his charity deals with such as homelessness in Plymouth.
“We decorated shoe boxes and wrapped presents that students had brought in from home and took the shoes boxes down to the Shekinah Mission.
“After school we had a Tor Bridge High market where all tutor groups sold gifts that they had been designing and making all day. It was so busy and a great success.
“A couple of our year 11 pupils came in the next morning and said that they had gone home and emailed the Shekinah Mission to see if they can volunteer there. All the students were so positive about the day and we are really looking forward to doing more work with John and the team in the new year.”
