Donations raised as of lunchtime on Wednesday 30 March
On Wednesday 30 March, the Quad was filled with excitement during lunchtime as our Year 7 pupils (mentored by Sixth Form House Leaders and Charity Reps) led a fundraising event to support Ukraine.
Each form group set up and ran their own activity booths which included Pie the Teacher, Pin the Hat on Norman the Duck, cookie decorating, a tombola and more. Our Green Fingers Club sold laser cut and engraved wooden keyrings and acrylic pin badges to raise money for the cause.
We have also been supporting St Mark’s Church in Surbiton as it coordinates donations of essential items to families in Ukraine. We have collected items to help with the most basic needs, such as nappies, first aid kits, non-prescription drugs, feminine hygiene products and deodorant.
Through our student-led initiatives, non-uniform day and generous contributions from the Surbiton High School community, we have raised over £14,800 for the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
In addition to our fundraising efforts, we have delivered whole-school assemblies focusing on the geopolitical history of the region, and what we can do as a community to support those who are being affected by the conflict. Our Politics Department have created a Podcast to help us all better understand the events that have led to this conflict, and we have been using tutor time to answer questions that the pupils may have.
