The academy recently held a non-uniform day to raise money for the victims of the Grenfell disaster. This followed a week of assemblies, highlighting the impact this has had on the local community.
Staff from the academy have travelled to the site of the fire to bring toiletries and clothes to those affected, to offer emotional support, and to provide food for those affected. Mr Rathor spoke powerfully in the assemblies about the emotional impact of his visit to the scene, and the need for us all to come together to support member of our community in their time of need.
It was wonderful to see so many of our students take part in wearing something green for the day; we raised a whopping £916:36 on the day, with additional donations still coming in! The money will be put towards the costs of counselling for some of the young people affected. The students of TSPA, with the support of Art teacher Mrs Floyd, are also in the process of creating a special ‘Collage of Hope’ that will be taken to the site in September 2017.
Special thanks to Miss O'Callaghan and Mr Rathor for organising the event.
