HTIS happy to support local charity
Students at Kidderminster’s Holy Trinity International School (HTIS) helped raise and amazing £350 in support of children’s charity Noah’s Ark Trust by taking part in an ‘Orange Friday’ where everyone dressed in the theme of orange.
HTIS Head, Mrs Pam Leek-Wright said: “As part of our pastoral programme we invited the Noah’s Ark Trust charity to take part in presenting at our Senior School assemblies to talk to the students about the bereavement counselling work that they do.
“These talks were then supported by a series of presentations and workshops to students from years 7 – 13, which helped them to develop an understanding and an awareness of how to deal with issues of bereavement on a personal level and how to support someone who had suffered a loss. It’s not an easy subject to discuss but one that we all face. The partnership between Holy Trinity and Noah’s Ark has proved to be an invaluable one.”
Working throughout Worcestershire and Herefordshire, Noah’s Ark Trust offers a free service to all children and young people affected by the death of someone close to them, with the aim being to relieve the distress experienced through group work, ‘one to one’ support, personal mentoring and residential weekends.
Noah’s Ark School Bereavement Advisor, Alison Kane, stated: “Our services are in increasing demand and we heavily rely on fundraising and donations to continue to offer our services free of charge. We appreciate Holy Trinity International School’s support with the money they’ve raised going directly to help children who need our support.”
