Crowborough students write letters to Ukraine families & organise bake sale


Students at Beacon Academy have put pen to paper to offer kind words to Ukrainian citizens seeking refuge in Poland.

Before lessons begin at the start of each day, students were given the opportunity to write letters and design cards that could be posted to a charity collecting “Letters of Kindness” which would be hand delivered to individuals and families in need.

Head of Personal Development Miss Lorna Miller, explained:

At Beacon Academy we are dedicated to promoting values which ensure that students develop a strong sense of social and moral responsibility. Every day we encourage the students to “Make Your Mark” and support others by promoting Manners, Acceptance, Respect and Kindness in every aspect of school and daily life.

I would like to thank all students for their wonderful contributions to this project. The thought and care that has been put into creating these letters of kindness is testament to our young people’s maturity and empathy. One student had even helped another to translate their letter into Ukrainian.
