Staff at New Hall School, Chelmsford, are delighted with the results of their ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’ drive.
The initiative, led by PA to the School Principal, Mrs Taryn Dodd, saw staff bringing in items for donation to the Braintree Area Food Bank on a regular basis in the lead up to Advent. The final donation to the food bank was 15 full boxes of food and toiletries, doubling last year’s total.
Alongside its successful academic programme, New Hall School encourages students in charitable work and giving, holding a number of fundraising events throughout the year in support of a range of charities and running the successful New Hall Voluntary service, which all students are involved with during their time at the school. New Hall has excellent music and performing arts provision and fantastic sports facilities and training programmes. The boarding and day school for students aged 3-18 has a Catholic foundation and ethos, which welcomes those of all backgrounds. The strong pastoral care structure at the school supports students in their endeavours, allowing them to achieve success in a wide variety of fields.
