We are pleased to inform you that the last day of term, Tuesday 24th July, will be a non-school uniform day.
As we are moving to a new school uniform in September, we have been considering how we might best re-purpose our existing uniform in a meaningful way. Therefore, we would like to invite our pupils to bring in their ‘old’ school uniform, so that it can be collected to be used by disadvantaged children in our wider global community.
We have been in dialogue with a number of charitable organisations, including Bude Refugee Support Group, with the ultimate goal of providing school uniform for displaced and impoverished communities.
This day will be an opportunity not only to celebrate our students individual successes in Budehaven, but also to have a marked impact on other young people; children who cannot help the situation they find themselves in, to be empowered by supporting some of their basic needs.
We would welcome the donation of any items of school uniform that would no longer be required, including jumpers, trousers, skirts, polo shirts and shoes, which can be collected in by tutors on Tuesday morning.
An important aspect of the Budehaven Way is that we care for each other. This would be an amazing chance for our pupils to share in the experience of extending care and kindness to children in other parts of the world that are in need of our help.
Many thanks – Mr O’Dwyer
