The Stockport Grammar School community has been so grateful for the amazing work of the NHS, charities and other vital frontline workers during the recent months. We have wanted to do what we can to help.
As staff continued to develop the minds of pupils through a variety of virtual learning methods; SGS has collected equipment donations, raised money for charity and designed PPE equipment.
Now a midwife, former SGS swimming teacher Kristy Franklin took a donation of toiletries from the school community to staff at Stepping Hill Hospital.
After calls for extra PPE equipment, SGS gathered goggles and protective equipment from the Science departments to donate to Stockport NHS Trust and to a local care home.
The Design Technology department boosted these efforts by producing face visors for NHS staff.
To help keep morale high amongst our key frontline workers, Junior School children have made posters to thank the NHS and all those who care for us.
Some of their beautiful paintings appeared on display in the Emergency Department at Macclesfield District General Hospital.
Budding Second Year chefs made carrot cake as part of their practical work. It was wonderful to see the baking by one of our pupils enjoyed by NHS workers.
Junior School Headteacher Tim Wheeler MBE ran the London Marathon....in his own back garden, completing over 550 laps in full Scissorman costume to raise money for The Little Princess Trust.
Six SGS families raised money for Emmeline's Pantry with their ‘Tour De Lockdown’ which saw them run, walk and cycle a combined 3,500km.
