Bromsgrove School is proud of its boarders but particularly those who have been unable to return home to their families since Christmas.
There are three whom the School wishes to pay tribute to – Gavin, David and Irene. Their dedication, enthusiasm and incredible cheerfulness, has been wonderful and it lifts the spirits of everyone in the House.
Here they are pictured giving up their free time to help make the face shields for the frontline NHS workers.
The School has also recently received a letter from a group of parents “Our children are saddened by the Coronavirus situation and equally missing their school life so much. Since they left Bromsgrove, they have paid close attention in observing things around the school campus. When they learnt that their school had been making face shields, drawstring bags etc. for the NHS to help during the crisis, they proudly drew posters and put them together to show their support and solidarity to their school community. In addition, our children have expressed that they want to donate their pocket money to help their school to buy more materials/equipment to help the NHS or those who are in real need”.
After reading about the face shields that Headmaster Peter Clague and the boarders had made by hand to assist in the national effort against the Coronavirus pandemic, the family of Bowen C was inspired to help; they donated surgical gloves and masks, having contacted the Headmaster to express their wish for the School to use the distribution channels to the NHS that they had established.
