TO ALL PARENTS / GUARDIANS
20 March 2019
Dear Parent / Guardian
I am writing to confirm that students will be allowed to attend school wearing non-uniform, on Friday, 5 April 2019. The non-uniform day will again be in support of the Ugandan “Kings Kid Home” Orphanage and therefore we kindly ask for a minimum donation of £2.00 in support of this charity.
The vision for King's Kid was birthed in the hearts of Robert and Esther Mponye, a couple in Mityana, a town in central Uganda. When a two day old baby girl was found discarded in a local latrine, Robert and Esther adopted her and, taking inspiration from watching her grow, decided to open a home for orphaned children, which now has over 200 members.
The orphanage also has a choir and it is our ambition to fly the choir over to the UK to be able to perform with our singers and also to spend a week experiencing what it is like to attend our school. We have been raising money for this project since the start of this year and we continue to do so in a bid to turn this dream into reality for these young people.
If you are happy to donate the minimum request of £2 (larger sums are greatly welcomed!), then please send this in with your child and ask them to hand it to their tutor, at least 24 hours in advance of the non-uniform day. Tutors will begin to collect donations from the start of that week commencing Monday, 1 April. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your support and any donations that you can make.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at the school if you have any questions or queries about the planned non-uniform day.
Mr Guy Wilkinson
