Academy sets out to help Crisis

Students and staff at Bethnal Green Academy (BGA) have had a busy month following the launch of the school’s annual arts, sports and culture WinterFest, which raises money for charity.

It set a tally of just over £2,000 for Crisis, the charity for homeless people, which will enable 100 homeless people to have a place at Crisis this Christmas.

Deputy principal Jennie Montgomerie said: “The programme is designed to give our students unique opportunities to work collaboratively, to develop new ideas and skills and be highly creative, whilst understanding the importance of how financial contributions can support Crisis.

“WinterFest allows us to bring all our great work together and really showcases what we are good at, from card-making to carol singing, storytelling and acting. There is something to suit everyone’s tastes.”
