Sheffield High Year 13 students to live 'Below the Line'!

As part of their charitable fundraising, Year 13 Economics students at Sheffield High School – together with teacher Laura Young – will be living on £1 a day for five days as part of the ‘Living Below the Line’ campaign.

Live Below the Line is a campaign that’s challenging the way people in the UK think about poverty – and making a huge difference.

The campaign in school fits in well with the students’ Economics course, as they have been looking at poverty and development.

They are looking for sponsorship and donations to support their efforts and they will be holding a school assembly after the Easter break to pass on their experiences to the younger girls in school.

For more on this campaign, please see the Below the Line Website

Looking at the picture of food for 5 days, it all looks like quite a challenge! You can read about how they get on on their blog
