CREATIVE pupils from a Wirral school have shown their community-hearted nature yet again by creating Shelterboxes in aid of a charity's fight against Covid-19 in some of the world's most fragile places.

The year seven students Clare Mount Specialist Sports College in Moreton took on a challenge to design and build a model shelter in their form groups.

Despite being new to the school, they chose 'Shelterbox' as its charity and took the lead in organising fundraising.

Their fantastic efforts raised an incredible £322.26.

A spokesperson for the school told the Globe: "Pupils, many of whom have social and communication difficulties including Autism, rose to the challenge and produced a remarkable range of shelters, showing fantastic teamwork."

The charity helps families already been devastated by disasters or forced to flee their homes because of conflict and violence, urgently need space, shelter and basics like soap and water to help protect themselves from this disease.

A spokesperson for the school told the Globe: "Fundraising has brought its rewards in return with pupils gaining confidence, excitement, engagement and enjoyment from their efforts.

"The school has found that parents are particularly positive about this, actively encouraging their children to get involved."

Praising their efforts, headteacher Kim Webster said: "I am incredibly proud of all our pupils and staff at Clare Mount Specialist Sports College.

"They never cease to amaze me with their sense of community spirit and desire to help others".

Among the pupils taking on the challenge was Jake, Lewis and Katie.

Jack said: "It was very good. It felt very rewarding, knowing that we are helping people. I would do it again. I love "

Lewis said: "At times like this it is hard, obviously with people losing their jobs. But because we have raised money, I think everybody should do the best they can to help."

Katie: "I just feel very happy that the school has raised money to help people that need money."

Year seven's head of year Sarah Crouch said: "As with everything, the whole year wanted to be involved and got stuck into the project, in very creative ways.

"It's just that real sense of community that we have.

"At the end of it there was an award for most creative shelter, most innovative shelter, teamwork and co-operation."

The fundraising success is just the tip of the iceberg for this school as it has been recognised nationally several times this term for its hugely supportive community efforts, including receiving the Youth Sport Trust Girls Active Young Activist Award, in recognition of its sports and activities programme offered to the older people in care homes, residential settings and day centres locally and with PE teacher, Mr White, achieving ‘Nasen Teacher of the Year 2020’ for his tireless work on inclusion during the national lockdown.
