To our colleagues in Surrey schools – we applaud you all as critical workers and the.herculean effort to support children, their families and your communities : founded in tremendous strength and depth of local partnerships. It is a privilege to work with you all. Thank you.
As we navigate this significant task, we are heartened to see the Surrey schools community coming together to support one another. This page has been created to make a space to shine a light on these acts of co-operation and kindness, and to provide a space for schools to come together to offer and ask for support from their community.
Is your school doing something special to support the community?
If your school is getting involved with community activities, or if you've seen an inititiative or a good news story you'd like to share, we'd love to hear about it. Contact us at email@example.com
Schools across Surrey have been donating their PPE supplies - including goggles, aprons, gloves and sanitizer, to support NHS frontline staff. So far, an estimated 5,000 goggles have been donated.
But the drive is not over - 1,000 more sets of goggles have been asked for in the Greater London and Surrey region. If schools are able to donate to this important cause, please contact Cassia Steinbath of Hinchley Wood School here.
Local hospitals have been expressing their gratitude for the donations:
"Thank you so much! You cannot imagine what a difference your donations have made - you have definitely restored our faith in human kindness! Our doctors and nurses could not believe that they could now have their own pair of goggles, as the supply has been so intermittent and, as I told you, we had just run out of visors (disposable) when you arrived. We are grateful to you and your colleagues."
"These are coming just at the right time, thank you so much."
