Special thanks go to Rabbi Gaffin, together with Light Up a Life and Project ImpACT, as our Year 9 girls spent Thursday, period 1, wrapping lots of boxes of chocolates to be distributed to NHS workers in the London hospitals and care homes in time for the winter holidays.
Each student also wrote a personal note of thanks to staff, which was attached to the wrapped gift. The project was aimed at showing gratitude to medical, nursing and support staff for their tireless dedication to looking after us in very challenging circumstances.
Students from Hasmonean High School for Girls, as well as pupils from Hasmonean High School for Boys (see last week’s eNews article and picture), Immanuel College, JFS, Yavneh and JCoSS participated so that almost 1000 Year 9 students from Jewish schools took part in this initiative. Rabbi Gaffin is planning to run more events with Project ImpACT as the year progresses.
