A former student, Matthew, approached the school last term, showcasing a charity he has a close link to. The charity is call East African Playgrounds and aims to raise money to purchase play equipment for children in Uganda. Uganda has the fifth highest number of refugees of any country in the world and many of these refugees are children who just want to play and have a little bit of fun in their lives. Play is recognised as a right for children by the United Nations and is a key component in their growing up and development.
The school staged a non-uniform day on 29th March and raised £800 for this worthwhile cause. If you would like to know more about the charity’s work, please take a moment to visit their website at www.eastafricanplaygrounds.org
