R.E.A.L. Community Spirit

In response to the ongoing situation with Covid-19, learners at R.E.A.L. Education have been engaging with their local community to demonstrate kindness at this time of difficulty for so many people.

The week of the 23rd March marked the start of R.E.A.L.’s ‘Community Spirit’ theme. Learners wrote letters to local elderly residents, made posters to ask for panic buying in shops to stop, and came up with ideas for helping the local self isolating elderly community.

There was also a poster competition, won by Kai for his brilliant rainbow poster (see above).

For the next Community Spirit competitions, learners are being asked to design a 100th birthday card for Captain Tom Moore (who has raised over 20 million pounds for the NHS), use a rainbow theme to make a display/poster for their front window to show support to the NHS and spread hope, and to write a poem to say thank you to staff who work as carers in the community, care homes or NHS staff.

Nikki Purcell, R.E.A.L. Independent School Headteacher said: “It’s really important for our learners that we embrace and promote any positivity at this time.

“They really engaged with these activities and we are looking forward to seeing the entries for the next Community Spirit competitions!”
