Year 9 pupils from Embley delivered handmade gifts to staff at the Alma Road surgery in Romsey in recognition of the sacrifices NHS workers have made for everyone this year. The hampers were produced by pupils in their Art, Design Technology (DT) and Food Technology lessons.
Each student made a hand drawn card of a winter animal or bird in their Art lessons, a gift box with stained glass window effects in DT and shortbread and cheese biscuits in Food Technology.
Embley art teacher Mrs Henville commented: “The project was planned by art and DT staff back in June during the first lockdown. The rationale was to encourage our students to engage with our local community, acknowledging the impact COVID has had on others outside their immediate circle and for the students to understand and appreciate the efforts and sacrifices many people, especially NHS workers, have made for us all this year. We wanted them to ‘give something back’ to society.”
