You may have seen the front page of The Petersfield Post this week which shows the Petersfield Aid Effort to support those victims affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
TPS has volunteered to be part of this aid effort and we will be asking our students and parents/carers to help support the Philippines in their hour of need.
Our contributions will form part of the second container which leaves from Petersfield to the Philippines in the last week of term.
I have liaised with the aid agencies in the Philippines Appeal and have let them know that we will ask our students if they can help by donating one of the following, depending on their year group:
Year 7 - Wash bag
Year 8 - Bar of soap
Year 9 - Toothbrush
Year 10 – Flannel/Face Cloth
Year 11 - Hairbrush or comb
We will then create a small hygiene bag for the victims.
To ease collection, I will organise 5 labelled plastic containers that will be kept in the Foyer/Gallery of the Studio for students/staff to drop their contributions in.
Thank you for any help you can give for this appeal.
