On Wednesday 16th March, our lovely colleagues and young people at Brewood School took part in ‘A Day for Ukraine’, fundraising for DEC’s Humanitarian Appeal and raising over £100!
Everyone donned their blue and yellow clothing, cakes were baked, bought and devoured, and following a reflection on the situation, everyone got together to write their own personal messages of support.
But the support doesn’t stop there. Brewood’s pupils have also planted sunflower seeds and are looking forward to seeing them grow. Headteacher Dr Kathy Butterworth said “Sunflowers are the national flower of Ukraine, and we have planted these seeds to represent our ongoing support for those affected by this conflict, and as a symbol of our wish for peace.” Once ready, the young people will be looking to raise even more money with a ‘Sponsor a Sunflower’ fundraiser.
The news can be quite scary at the moment, which is why First News Education are providing daily updates to give a simple explanation of the situation and help answer any question that the children and young people in our lives may be asking: https://schools.firstnews.co.uk/ukraine/
