“Thank you” Haberdashers

The Holt School has a proud legacy of supporting charities and, through our very competitive house system, we choose to support various local initiatives. Over the past year, The Haberdashers have been creative in raising money for the Me2 Club. Some of the successful ideas were ‘A Sponsored Silence’, wherein students from year 7 to year 10 committed to using sign language and prompt cards to communicate with each other and their teachers for a day. The school was a slightly quieter place that day and it raised just over £700; many parents were clearly willing to pay for a bit of peace and quiet for a day. Other activities that took place were a sponsored ‘No Phones Friday’ with students giving up their mobile phones for a day; no students were harmed in this process. We also ran a cake sale and popsicle sale to boost the total. Our target was £1000, and we were able to surpass our target.  All the money we have raised (£1100) goes directly to the Me2 Club. It has been a privilege to be able to support such a worthy cause and we hope we can inspire other young people around us to be community-minded.”

“S enjoys taking part in activities that they did not like to do before, like cooking and taking part in big group games. Instead of always sitting in the corner they are now able to join the group without me even encouraging them to do so.”
