Despite school being closed to the majority of young people, staff have been checking in with our students to see how they are coping during lockdown. We have been delighted to discover a number of students who have taken it upon themselves to try and make a difference during this pandemic by helping to provide support in whichever way they can.
Year 10 student, James M, has been using his 3D printer to print protective face visors and donating them to his local hospitals. A brilliant and creative idea that is not only providing support for our NHS but also our local community.
Year 9 student, Keziah G-M, has been drawing portraits for family and friends to raise money for her chosen charity NHS Together. Not only has she been able to spread some much-needed joy through her drawings but she has also raised an impressive £170 for a worthy cause.
Year 9 student, Violet W has been working incredibly hard to support a charity called Platform that runs day-care centres for disabled young adults that unfortunately has had to close due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Not only has she used her time during lockdown to learn sign language so she can send singing and signing videos to the young people but she has also created cookery lessons, put on dance shows and put together activity bags that are delivered fortnightly to the young people the charity supports.
We couldn’t be prouder to see our students using this time to help others in our community. If you or someone you know has been doing something remarkable like the students above please get in touch with your Head of House or the school (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let them know, we would love to hear all about it.
