Heartlands High School in Wood Green raises £930 for Syria
Schoolchildren performed an evening of music and poetry to help children suffering in Syria.
Pupils at Heartlands High School raised £930.17 for the Syria Winter Appeal at a night of food, music, poetry, and speeches that was open to the community to enjoy.
More than 100 people from all cultures and faiths attended last Wednesday’s event at the school in Station Road, Wood Green.
Children recited verse from the Quran, showed videos they had made about the Syrian conflict, sang songs and read poetry they had written.
The evening ended with a performance of four songs by young Muslim musician Saif Adam.
Year 9 pupil Tia Thomas said: “I was really glad that I was able to help all the families in Syria. I was really nervous before the performance but I really enjoyed it at the end knowing I had contributed to helping others.”
Member of staff Mr Huw Levis said: “It was fantastic to see such a wonderful group of students and staff come together to help those in need at such a terrible time.
“The talent on show was outstanding and there was a superb community feel”.
Human Appeal thanked the school for the money, adding the money raised would go to helping non-profit organisation provide heaters, winter blankets, mattresses and warm clothing for the 6.5million Syrians forced to leave their homes because of the fighting.
