Blue is the colour for Year 1

Teaching the idea of charity to children is a vital part of Eaton House The Manor Girls’ School’s ethos. The school believes that a genuine awareness of the difficulties that others may face is character building and an essential part of the preparation for life.

On Friday 18 June, Eaton House The Manor Girls’ School supported the Alzheimer’s Society and the ‘Cupcake Event’. Girls came to school wearing a ‘Splash of Blue’ as these are the Alzheimer’s Society colours. Mrs Leah Hickie, Senior Mistress Pastoral and Head of Music at Eaton House The Manor Girls’ School, organised the event.

Girls came to school wearing their usual school uniform whilst adding a splash of blue of their choice. Some of the girls chose hair accessories, and others, nail varnish, boppers and socks and so on. Everybody made a huge effort to wear their best blue finery, and some even wore accessories of blue cupcakes!

Eaton House Schools create a culture where children are taught that charity and giving back is vital

To add to the spirit of this wonderful occasion, the School Catering Team kindly baked cupcakes with the Alzheimer’s Society logo featured on them. These were part of the girls’ lunch. The staff raised awareness on Alzheimer’s disease itself during their form times throughout the day.

This is the last charity event of the school year, and parents offered a £1 donation on a voluntary basis. Charity monitors were on the front gate with Mr Oliver Snowball, Headmaster, collecting donations. ‘Eaton House The Manor Girls’ School is grateful for all of your generous support for our charity events throughout the academic year,” said Mr Snowball.
