On Friday 24th of November, Lower School student Alfie embarked on a remarkable journey. Motivated by the selfless efforts of the British Red Cross in Gaza, Alfie envisioned a unique way to contribute to the cause while simultaneously enhancing his own well-being.
Alfie set out on a 3-mile walk around Penarth, accompanied by the support of Mr. Morris and Mr. Hackett. As a school community, we couldn’t be prouder of Alfie’s initiative and commitment. His story serves as a shining example of the values we hold dear at our school—compassion, resilience, and a shared dedication to making a positive impact.
Hi, it’s Alfie from Lower School here! I did something that I’m really proud of and wanted to share it with all of you!
After reading the news in class and learning about all the incredible stuff the British Red Cross does, especially in Gaza, I wanted to do something to help out. I decided to get fit and raise money at the same time!
Last Friday, I put on my walking shoes, grabbed Mr. Morris and Mr. Hackett, and we walked a whopping 3 miles around Penarth. It was a bit tiring, but we had so much fun chatting and laughing along the way. And you won’t believe it – I’ve already raised £65 for the British Red Cross!!
But wait, there’s more – I’m not stopping there! I’m still collecting money. If any of you could spare some money or convince your staff to chip in, that would be super awesome! Let’s make a big difference together!
I’ll be around school to collect any donations, so don’t be shy – come say hi and help support this incredible cause. The British Red Cross does such important work, and I’m so happy to be a part of it.
