Remem­brance Day 2019


On Mon­day 11th Novem­ber, we invite our stu­dents to wear some­thing red, to help us reflect on the sac­ri­fices made for us, and for every­body around the world. All funds raised from dona­tions will go to Help For Heroes.

Porch­light Cheque Presentation

When Nathan Tough, Com­mu­nity and Cor­po­rate Fundrais­ing Offi­cer, for the char­ity came to the Thanet Sec­ondary Head­teach­ers’ meet­ing to talk about the grow­ing issue of home­less­ness in Thanet all of the head­teach­ers were shocked by the sta­tis­tics and vowed to work together to sup­port this won­der­ful char­ity. At the end of the last aca­d­e­mic year all stu­dents in Thanet, aged 1118, from whichever sec­ondary school they attend, were encour­aged to carry out a series of char­ity events in order to raise aware­ness of home­less­ness and money toplaceholder 150x150px sup­port the work Porch­light does.

Harts­down Acad­emy had a sleep out with stu­dents and staff, includ­ing the head­teacher Matt Tate, sleep­ing on the ground out in the open air all night. “Although it was sum­mer it was still really cold and we had sleep­ing bags and coats,” said one stu­dent, “it really shows how hard it is to be home­less and I dread to think what it would be like in the win­ter.” Other schools had non-​uniform days, cake sales, par­ents’ cof­fee morn­ings, pyjama days, dance com­pe­ti­tions and spon­sored events. Sev­eral of the schools opened food banks so that dona­tions of food could be made and passed on to those who need it most.

Phoebe Palmer won her award for COURAGE. Phoebe has had a dif­fi­cult year and yet puts 100% effort into her school work, wor­ry­ing about oth­ers more than her­self despite all the hos­pi­tal appoint­ments she has had. No mat­ter what has been going on for her med­ically she is always focused, polite and kind.
Lisa Marie Money won the cat­e­gory of Young Carer and Friend­ship for her pos­i­tive out­look and her car­ing nature to all. She is start­ing her first year at Uni­ver­sity of Aberys­t­wythin Wales on a scholarship.
It was a fan­tas­tic evening and I was immensely proud of our stu­dents. They looked stunning!
It was also rather emo­tional, but I only cried 4 times!!
