Non-uniform day – Tuesday 22 May 2018

We would like to give you advance notice that Tuesday 22 May will be a non-uniform day. As is tradition, the suggested donation per student will be £1.00. We will use this occasion to raise funds for the ‘Together Forever Trust’, set up in memory of two of South Tyneside’s own: Chloe Rutherford and Liam Curry, who were killed in the Manchester Arena Bombings on 22 May 2017.

Chloe was a pupil at Harton for five years, and we have marked the first anniversary of her and Liam’s tragic deaths with a series of memorial assemblies, led by two of Chloe’s close friends, Clodagh Denham and Katie Reed. Liam’s and Chloe’s families came along to one of the assemblies, and we hope to continue to support the Trust, which aims to help young people reach their potential in sport and performance.

The theme for the non-uniform day will be the blue and pink colours associated with the Together Forever trust. Pupils are encouraged to wear something blue or pink, whatever is their choice. Some children may opt for their usual blue school uniform T shirt, which would be perfectly fine.

For sensible reasons, there will be no relaxation of the school rule regarding the wearing of jewellery and we ask parents to ensure that non-uniform wear is appropriate and tasteful.

Year 11 students attending school for an exam must wear their usual school uniform.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Yours sincerely
Mr C Chesborough
Deputy Head Teacher
