Stationers’ Crown Woods students were thrilled to meet Police Officers today and hand over a total of 105 Christmas gift bags, all crammed with presents in response to the Metropolitan Police Christmas Tree Project 2017 Appeal, providing gifts for young people of Greenwich.
Academy Appeal Coordinator, Hayley Williams said: ‘This appeal really touched the hearts of our students and each form group has been busy fundraising to buy gifts for weeks. We have also had many amazing contributions of gifts from parents; everyone has been so generous”.
The presents were gathered around the Academy Christmas Tree as students arrived to school in the morning so that everyone was able to see the piles of gifts. Associate Principals, Anita Croft and Faz Rahman were completely blown away by the care and thoughtfulness displayed by students when choosing what gift to buy.
PC Becky Ring, School Liaison Officer said: “The response from students has been fantastic, this is by far the largest number of presents we have collected from a school. These gifts will really bring joy to young people on Christmas morning and I would like to thank everyone for their support.”
