A well done to all the pupils of St Mary’s College in Southampton for making their Harvest of Talents project such a great success! Their ideas, enthusiasm and hard work have been absolutely fabulous! Thank you all!
As you may remember, the Harvest of Talents project is based on the Biblical parable of talents which reminds us that God gives us gifts and skills that can be used for the good of others.
Each student thought about their own gifts and abilities before thinking of as many ways as they could to use their talents for the benefit of others. They were then given £5 each to invest in their ideas with the aim of multiplying this money as much as they could over five weeks.
The pupils’ start up fund was provided by the Southampton Circle Catenian Association whose members were also on hand throughout the project to act as mentors and offer their business expertise.
Today marked the official close of the project but some groups are still going! Therefore the final total is yet to be announced but they’ve made a very impressive profit so far!
