Manchester High School for Girls

WONDER WORDSMITHS RAISE THOUSANDS FOR THE NSPCC

The youngest wordsmiths of MHSG were celebrating recently as they found out their sponsored spelling event had raised an amazing £7,086.19 for the NSPCC.

All the girls from the Preparatory Department, aged four to 11, took part in the fundraiser in a bid to help the national children’s charity campaigning for and working in child protection.

Earlier this spring, the NSPCC visited Prep to deliver their ‘Speak out. Stay Safe.’ – programme which is helping children have the knowledge and understanding that they need to stay safe from abuse and neglect.

Head of the Preparatory Department, Mrs Nash, said: “Our pupils raise thousands of pounds for various local and national charities each year, and feeling positive and being kind to others is central to our School’s ethos.

“Kindness is a hallmark of the girls’ actions at Manchester High; something that never ceases to impress me about our young pupils, and of which I am inordinately proud. The raising of over £7,000 for the NSPCC by our girls was a huge tribute to their ability to think of the well-being of others.”
