Last week in school, the Northampton High community was delighted to do their bit to help raise vital funds for Ukraine by holding a special mufti day. We held the event last Friday in aid of the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund, and at time of writing we have raised a whopping £2,192! The school became awash with yellow and blue, as the entire school community came together to show solidarity to those in Ukraine.
The Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund is raising essential money to help those in need during the current situation in the country. Money raised by Northampton High’s mufti day and by other events up and down the country will help to support those communities affected by providing access to education, food, medical services and psychosocial support. An estimated 3.4 million people are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance in eastern Ukraine, and with the COVID-19 pandemic being an added challenge, these essential funds will go a long way to helping those who need it most.
We began the school day with a poignant assembly delivered by Headmistress Adele O’Doherty, which gave pupils a clear and concise overview of the history and geography of the region and the current situation. Themed events continued throughout the day, with students and staff alike coming together to show their support.
