Children from Valour Multi Academy Trust Schools have used their arts and crafts skills to contribute to keeping people’s morale up.
The children initially chose to make cards for workers of the NHS to thank them for the service which they are providing at this particularly busy time. The cards are being sent to two hospitals in Newcastle; the RVI and Freeman. We were assured that there was plenty of glitter in the process of producing these cards!
Additionally, the children suggested that they also make cards for the elderly residents of the nearby care home Lincrest Court. Also, they made hand printed rainbows as they wanted to do something to help cheer up their community. Head Teacher, Dame Nicola Stephenson, said ‘our children are showing the community action we have been trying to build into their character over the last two years’ it is great to see young people having the will to help in whatever way they can; especially at a time when it is much needed.
The North-East has always been stronger together; we would like to hear how your school is dealing with the issues surrounding school closures and COVID-19.
