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.”
