Three St. Mary’s students recently received awards from the Menston Community Association for Outstanding Community Service.
The pupils have, together with other students from the local area, run an ‘eggs to iPads’ scheme in which they have taught elderly members of the community to communicate with family and friends through the use of modern technology.
The students have devoted an hour of their time every week to the project and have done a great job not only in their teaching, but in building positive relationships with our senior citizens.
Shaun Street 11P, Hattie Barnes 10C and Rowan Wynn 9P received their awards last week.
