Students at St Peter’s Middle School donated tinned and packet food as part of the school’s policy of helping those less fortunate.
The food was collected as part of the school’s harvest festival celebrations and it will be distributed by Windsor Foodbank to those in need.
The new vicar at The Church of St Peter and St Andrew, Reverend Adel Shokralla, attended a special assembly at the school in Crimp Hill on Wednesday, September 16, and spoke to the children about people who are not as fortunate as they are.
Student Abigail Clare-Panton, 11, said: “Seeing the news about people around the world who do not have enough to eat made me think about how lucky I am.
“It is good for us to share some of our spare food with those locally who cannot afford it.”
Headteacher Sharon Yardley said: “It was lovely to have the Reverend Adel join us as he starts his ministry in the village.
"He motivated the children to rise above the ordinary and help other people, which is part of our school’s Christian ethos.”
