Foodbank appeal

Dear Parent /Carer

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your incredilble support during our most recent charity appeal in support of  our local food bank.   Our school has always done a lot for charity and this is only possible due to the generosity of our students and their families.

For this appeal, we have collected a simply stunning amount of food  in just  2 weeks:  well over 2,250  items to donate . The  food bank supports local families in crisis, many of whom have not eaten for three days when they are referred there.

This is a true reflection of the spirit of Washwood Heath, a place where we work together and make things  happen .  We are proud of each and every one of our students for their  kindness to  families  in difficult circumstances.

Domino Rally!!!

‘WHA students worked with Stan’s Cafe, the Birmingham-based Arts Company, in an extraordinary memorial to those who died in the First World War. By naming dominoes designed to look like war graves after individual soldiers who fell at the Somme, students have help the arts group prepare for a show about the War to be performed in London and Birmingham. The dominoes were set up in the Sports Hall and then were knocked down as they will be in the show: over 15,000 dominoes were decorated and set up in a fantastic and moving team effort.’
