Students Give Back To Local Community

Students singing at Age UK MK Lunch Club

During the holidays students from St Paul’s volunteered with local organisations, including Age UK Milton Keynes, as part of the National Citizens Service Summer Programme.

They did a fun run around Lodge Lake for Age UK Milton Keynes and then bought product for their lunch club, memory club and garden services.  They also sang at one of the charity’s lunch clubs at its Peartree Bridge headquarters.

The students also got the chance to see one of their former teachers, Harriet Opalinski, who now works as Strategic Development Manager for Age UK Milton Keynes.  Harriet said:  “I seem to bump into St Paul’s pupils all the time and it was great to see them helping our charity through National Citizens Service.”

This year more St Paul’s students signed up to do National Citizens Service’s summer programme than any other school nationally, achieving a bronze award for the school.  National Citizens Service helps children aged 15 – 17 to take part in challenges and help them build skills for work and life.  For those who plan to go to university, UCAS recommends that students include NCS in their personal statement.

St Paul’s students also worked for a number of other charities including HULA Animal Rescue in Aspley Guise.
