Mr T. Braybrook, Deputy Headteacher, writes:
The start of a new school year means that the annual round of fundraising for all of us at Stanborough starts again…
We have an amazing history at Stanborough at supporting a range of charities and in the past 10 years we have raised over £100,000 for charities including The British Red Cross, Guide Dogs for the Blind, Herts Young Homeless, Rays of Sunshine and Build Africa.
This year, we are supporting two local charities. The first is the Ollie Foundation based in St Albans. The Ollie Foundation (One Life Lost is Enough) is a charity funding suicide prevention skills for a range of partners.
Our second charity is the Welwyn Garden City Centenary Foundation who are planning a range of events, activities and celebrations to mark the 100 years of Welwyn Garden City.
As ever, we look forward to working closely with both of these local charities. This week, all the students have had a talk in assemblies from Verity Bramwell from the Ollie Foundation. We look forward to hearing from the Foundation at some point over the year.
Students will also receive today a sponsor form for first event of the year, our annual ’Run for Stanborough’ extravaganza which is on Thursday October 4th. More details to follow, watch this space!
