Having an outward-looking attitude is something that we are keen to promote to our children at Lambrook, providing them with opportunities to have a positive impact on others, both individually and collectively. Today the children have been able to make a small difference, supporting children all over the UK through an amazing charity and National campaign ‘Jeans for Genes’ by wearing jeans, raising money and of course, raising awareness for this most worthy cause.
We can give to others in so many ways, and our Lambrook pupils are always extremely generous in how they give their time, talents and resources, as they thought about others above themselves, through giving to Hope Valley, The Wilderness Trust, First Days and many more. This was also evident during the period of Remote Learning last term. In the absence of our normal school fundraising events, our pupils set to work creatively, serving those around them in many different ways: baking cakes for NHS staff, writing messages of support to key workers, making scrubs and PPE for frontline workers and supporting local foodbanks, to name but a few things. There were also many other acts of kindness that went un-noticed to most people, but each one had a significant impact.
A group that I am particularly grateful to, for their support in our charity fundraising, is our Lambrook Parent Teacher Committee (LPTC). This team of parents tirelessly give their time, talents and resources for the good of the school, in addition to the charities we support. Their willingness to serve makes Lambrook what it is and they are also instrumental in keeping the Lambrook Community connected, and have been welcoming new families over the past few weeks; despite not being able to meet on site at this time.
Thank you for your support that you continue to show Lambrook, and I wish you a happy weekend.
