Ukrainian Appeal

With the horrific and saddening events unfolding in Ukraine over recent weeks, pupils and staff at St. George’s School looked for ways to support the millions of people who have been forced to flee and evacuate their homes. Over a few days, the whole school community contributed to a huge collection of over 100 boxes full of non-perishable items to support the people currently in the regions of Kharkiv and Kyiv.

On Wednesday 23rd March, eight students accompanied school staff to drop off our donations to a Polish and Ukrainian centre in Erdington in connection with Moseley Hive. They said it was the largest donation they had received and informed us that a significant proportion of the donation would go to support in orphanages and amongst those who have been displaced by the war, as well as specifically supporting women who are on the frontline.

All of our students have responded positively and with really community spirit. A special mention must go to Year 10 students: Daniel B, Natalie C, Anya D, Donnie D, Fabian L, Luca M, Rosie S and Haset Y who took a real interest in the cause and helped deliver the donation.

Other Year 10 students who deserve a special mention are Michael B, Rohan C and Ajai S who organised a samosa and doughnut sale which raised £250 in aid of The Red Cross. This money is also helping the people of Ukraine who are suffering in this humanitarian crisis. All of the above students have shown exemplary attitudes towards helping others and we are proud of our whole school community for the response to this cause.
