Newsletter 11th March
It seems like quite a lot of time has elapsed since we came back from the half term break and the world is certainly in a very different place. The tragic and harrowing scenes of what is currently going on in Ukraine are truly heart-breaking.
In school we have handled the situation very sensitively and when we have spoken it, we have tried to focus on the humanitarian angle and what we can do to support the refugees fleeing their homeland. As I write this letter we have already raised over £400 for the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal organised by Save the Children. It would be fantastic if we could keep those donations coming in to raise as much as we possibly can. Friday the 11th March is a non-uniform day and the children can swap their uniform for their own clothes in exchange for a donation to the appeal. We would also like the children to wear something white for peace in Ukraine (white trainers, white socks, white t-shirts or even white ribbons and bows in hair. You could also just safety pin a piece of white fabric to your child’s top) There will also be a collecting bucket on the gate tomorrow for any parents who would rather make a cash donation rather than using the JustGiving page. Thank you so much for your support.
