In the Pink








There wasn't a blazer in sight last Friday as pupils swapped their school uniforms for pink outfits to raise money for Plan UK's Because I am a Girl campaign.

The charity campaign is one which Walthamstow Hall is supporting strongly, especially in our anniversary year. Plan was founded by a former Walthamstow Hall parent and his daughter, old girl Debbie Langdon-Davies, came in to talk to students about this important campaign last year.

Because I am a Girl's aim is to improve the education and life chances of four million girls around the world. The money raised will go towards equipping schools, training teachers, funding scholarships, delivering vocational programmes and changing cultures of early and forced marriages which take many young teenagers out of education in some developing countries.

Thank you to our parents for their generous donations to the charity.
