Jeans for Genes Day!

Posted on: September 18, 2015

Ormiston Herman Academy was pleased to support the annual Jeans for Genes Day again this year.

Children and staff across the academy donned their denim and donated £1 to help raise money for people who live with genetic complications. The money raised will help provide care, equipment and respite for families right across the country.

Marlie in Year 6 said, “Its important the we help others who are less fortunate than ourselves.”

Yesterday in assembly the children learned about how the genes that make us all different can sometimes go wrong and make life difficult for individuals and families.

Mark Thompson, Vice-Principal, said, “The children do understand the importance of helping both others in our academy and those in the wider, national and international communities. It makes me proud that our families are always ready to support our good causes.”

All of the money raised today will be sent to the Jeans for Genes charity.
