Students in Year 8 have been learning, as part of their Citizenship programme, about children who have suffered as a result of the war in Syria which has raged since 2011. An estimated 6.5 million children are in need of aid in Syria and neighbouring countries. We hope to raise some money to send to the 2015 UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund) appeal in aid of these children.
The day chosen is Friday 6 May, which will be a non-uniform day for Year 8. They are organising a variety of events, some of them focusing on the UNICEF colour, blue.
All donations to this worthy cause will be gratefully received as Year 8 try to match or surpass the splendid efforts of the present Year 9, Year 10, Year 11, Lower Sixth and Upper Sixth in 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012 and 2011.
