Well done and thank you to the school community for the compassion and commitment shown in collecting resources for the refugees currently living in the camps at Calais.

In our whole school assembly this week Toby Morgan and Henry Spencer told students and staff that all the donations have reached distribution centres ready to be given to those most in need.

We collected 90 bags of clothing, 20 boxes of food and lots of tents and sleeping bags.

This was a very apt item in Mr Butcher’s assembly. He went on to talk about our use of resources, encouraging us to reduce, re-use and recycle. Mr Butcher concluded, “You can’t change the world unless you change your local community.”

His assembly slides and links can be seen here.
