Welcome to The Shepwell School, providing education for young people in the Borough of Walsall who are unable to attend their mainstream schools because of medical, social and emotional needs.
Re: Sponsored Walk
After discussion with ‘our voice’ (school council) Shepwell School has decided to organise a sponsored walk to support one of our home tuition pupils. Isabella Lyttle is a 10 year old girl who has battled cancer since the age of 3. She has had times when she has managed to fight off the cancer but in March, 2017 her cancer came back. Isabella is currently having chemotherapy, again, and will soon start taking a trial drug. She has been told that if this treatment does not work there is no other treatment that can be offered to her.
The only option left for Isabella and her family would be treatment abroad, which is very expensive. Shepwell School has decided that we would like to help her raise money for this treatment.
As a whole school we are organising and taking part in a sponsored walk. The walk will take place at Walsall Arboretum on Monday 17th July. Pupils will meet staff at the Arboretum and 9.45 for registration and they we will all take part in the walk together. Pupils will be then dismissed from the Arboretum at 1.00pm, can all students please bring a packed lunch.
This is where we now need you support. Can you please sponsor your child and ask family and friends to also help. As a school we have a fantastic reputation for raising money and we are sure this time will be no exception.
There is a JustGiving page you can access where you can find more information about Isabella, you can find this on our website and on twitter.
Thank you all in advance for what we know will be a fantastic event and well done to pupils for wanting to be involved in such a fantastic event, we are very proud of you all!
L. Southall, Head of Home and Hospital Tuition
