All of you will be aware of the terrible ebola virus affecting parts of West Africa. Some of you won’t be aware that we have a partner school in Freetown, Sierra Leone, which is now badly affected by the crisis. HHS has taken two visits to the school, the first in 2009 (with Mrs Williamson & Mr Cockburn) and then last year (Mr MacIver & Mrs Nelson). Also last September pupils and teachers from Sierra Leone visited here. There are photos of the visits up in Social. The school in Freetown has been closed since July when the outbreak of the illness started to become really serious.
Since then the area of the city where the school is, has been in quarantine. Although we cannot help the pupils and teachers directly we wanted to contribute something toward the DEC appeal, the money from which will go to aid agencies working in Sierra Leone. Some teachers have already contributed to this appeal. If pupils would like to put a Christmas message on to our school screens for friends, classes or the school in general, then for a minimum donation of 50p we will organise it to go up during December. You don’t have to write about Ebola in your message. It can be what you would write on a Christmas card. You need to write your message on a piece of paper and give that, with your 50p donation, to either Mrs Williamson (D1), Mr MacIver (D7), Mrs Nelson (Pupil Office), or Mr Cockburn (Guidance Base). Thanks in advance for your support.
