Money raised for Oxfam appeal
In early October Hurricane Matthew swept through Haiti causing devastation and death; the exact number killed is not known, but is thought to be near 1,000.
Several members of our Sixth Form decided to respond to this natural disaster by raising money in the Senior School for the Oxfam Haiti appeal. Mr Chappory, Head of Geography, commented, ‘Haiti is one of those countries with greater levels of vulnerability to natural hazards because their level of economic development makes them less resilient’.
Over £250 was collected and the Sixth Formers gathered earlier this week to build the money into the spiral shape of a hurricane placed over a map of Haiti before sending the money raised to Oxfam.
Serena Gray, Lower VI, said ‘we are proud that our community was able to raise so much, we are glad to be able to help’. This initiative is a wonderful example of girls responding to need, in thought and action.
