Students from QEH have been fundraising throughout the last week, raising money to support victims of the conflict in Ukraine.

Year 9 have managed to raise a brilliant £956, smashing their original target of £500. This excellent result was no doubt inspired by Year 9 pupil, Elliott, talking so passionately in assembly about his father’s work.

“My dad was at QEH 30 years ago. He’s now working for a disaster response charity called RE:ACT.
In the last week, more than 1 million refugees (that’s more than two times the population of Bristol) have fled the fighting in Ukraine. RE:ACT has deployed a disaster response team to the border between Romania and Ukraine to help. They are also preparing to help welcome 200,000 refugees from Ukraine who are expected to arrive in the UK in the coming weeks.

Mrs Conquest suggested that we might want to do a fundraising event. The response team managed to get free flights to Romania, so my dad said if we can raise £500 that would pay for the disaster response team’s mission to Romania… covering their accommodation, food, transport, and visas.”

We hope to welcome the team to QEH in the future, to talk to our pupils about their work.

Sixth Formers also organised a cake sale on Wednesday of last week, something which is always popular here! The QEH community did not disappoint and an extra £393 was raised to add to the total.

As well as the above, we also held a non-uniform day and some smaller fundraising events, which raised another £1700, bringing the grand total to £3,049 – a figure to be proud of!

Over the next few weeks, our photography students also intend to sell some of their photography work (details to follow in QEH News). Finlay, in Year 8, and his family have also decided to cycle the distance from Clevedon to Kyiv and you can sponsor them here.

Ollie is a QEH 'lifer', as he joined QEH Juniors in Year 3, eleven years ago.  It's been great to watch his development through the years, both on and off the pitch.

Thank you Friends of QEH!

Induction day, but not as we know it!

This week, Year 6 boys and their teachers headed off to Exmoor for their last QE Award trip of the year and of the Junior School.  QE Camp is the final part of their two year outdoor pursuit programme and is the culmination of the skills they have learned and journey they have been on.

Exmoor at last

On my first day of Senior School it felt like I was let into a new family.
