Dear Parent/Guardian/Carer

It was an absolute privilege this morning for myself, the tutor team and Senior Leadership to watch the student’s presentations for the FirstGive programme. Many students chose to represent charities for which there was a personal connection and students spoke passionately and bravely on behalf of their charities. There was development of so many skills exhibited this morning in the creation of movies, editing, use of ICT, creative writing and poetry and presentation and teamwork skills. It was extremely inspiring to watch!

It is an impossible task but a maximum of 8 groups will now be selected to work with an ambassador from the FirstGive programme on Thursday afternoon. They will receive coaching and advice on presentation skills before presenting one more time as part of the FirstGive final for the opportunity to win £1500 for their charity. I will be in contact soon with the groups chosen to participate in the final and an invitation to attend, what I now know will be an absolutely inspirational event. I would suggest that tissues would be a necessity!

As a tutor team we are so extremely proud of the response of the year group to this programme, the effort that students have put in to making contact with their charities and creating their presentations has been phenomenal. The final provides the opportunity for us to provide financial support for a small number of the charities represented in the presentations today but we also intend to continue to build on the work that the students have put in to this programme in a variety of ways.

Please pass on to all the students how incredibly impressive their contributions to the FirstGive programme have been.

 Kind regards
