As a school, we have supported the work of Project Gambia for the past three years. We have done so through the donation of clothes, shoes, school resources, Christmas shoeboxes and in the future we will begin raising funds to support their latest projects.
The donations are shipped each year, on a 40ft container, to The Gambia.
Through assemblies and lessons, pupils learn about what life is like for children in The Gambia as well as developing an understanding of helping others who are in need.
Our Sponsored Student
Over the last few years, we have sponsored a young lady called ‘Khaddijatou Leigh’. The money that we have been raising through penny Monday’s has helped Khaddjiatou with her education as well as providing meals for her every day. She has now left the school and village therefore we will now be sponsoring a new student called ‘Mariam Seckan’. Each term, the school keeps in contact with us by providing us with report cards.
Mariam is currently in Grade 4 and making great progress. Please see her report form below:
Thank you to children, families and staff at Reddal Hill who have contributed to the donations sent. We are very proud to have such kind, thoughtful and generous families.
Bev, who is the founder of Project Gambia has written the school a thank you letter but I am sure everyone in our school community would also like to thank her for all her support in running the activities and helping us to establish the international link with The Gambia!
As you can see below, the donations last year were gratefully received by the children and our uniform, with the previous logo on it, looks fantastic on them!
We can't wait to see the pictures of this year's donations soon

Supporting the NHS
Staff at Reddal Hill have kindly donated biscuits, chocolates and toiletries to the staff on the ICU ward at the Q.E. Hospital in Birmingham.
The 'goodies' have been spread across the several staff rooms and the toiletries have been placed in the shower cubicles for staff who work long hours and take showers there. We know they have been greatly appreciated and will bring a smile to many of the staff there.
We would like to say a great big thank you to all the staff who have kindly donated chocolates, biscuits and toiletries to the hardworking staff on the ICU ward at the Q.E. Hospital!
Also, a HUGE thank you to Mrs Jackson for organising and delivering the items!
