Pupils at Archbishop Tenple School have donated over 15 litres of fresh vegetable soup to Preston’s Salvation Army last week.
80 Year 9 pupils prepared the soup as part of Spirituality Day, whilst Year 10 pupils, studying GCSE Food Prepearation and Nutrition, analysed the ingredients and produced nutritional labelling.
The Year 9 Spirituality Day has taken place on World Food Day for the past 4 years and the focus of the day is to think about the needs of people locally and further afield.

Students took part in a range of activities, such as trading trainers, in order to appreciate the economic difficulties of many families living in less developed countries.
They sampled Fairtrade food and learned about how we can have a positive impact upon the lives of people we never meet through our buying choices.
Pupils were able to learn about Sustainable Development Gosls and took part in fun games in the Sports Hall that helped them to think about the hurdles that people surmount to get clean water.
Before lunch the whole year group gathered together to hear an explanation of the meaning of Holy Communion by Reverend McConkey from Christ Church, Fulwood.
Reverend McConkey explained why different Christian’s use different names for this service.
Major Cadogen and Captain Cadogen from the Salvation Army in Preston spent a little time seeing how some pupils were making vegetable soup before speaking to the year group about how important the support we give is to those in need in Preston.
