I am sure you will join us in sending our thoughts and best wishes to all of those affected by the typhoon that has caused such devastation and loss of life in the Philippines.
At least 10,000 people are feared to have been killed. Survivors desperately require aid but reports say little is getting through. Philippine President Benigno Aquino has declared a state of national calamity. The UN has launched an appeal for $301m (£190m) to help areas in the Philippines devastated by Typhoon Haiyan. As a school, we are organising a collection of supplies to be sent to affected regions – please read the article, Typhoon Haiyan - How you can donate by Orna English's son, Johny, on how to make a contribution to the aid effort.
The World Health Organisation is working around the clock to help co-ordinate incoming relief supplies from more than 30 international humanitarian health organisations to ensure there is minimum duplication of materials and medicines arriving at any one location, and that hospitals, personnel and supplies get as quickly as possible to those places where they are needed most.
Any support you can give is gratefully received and we will work with the whole community to try and get the supplies to the right people to make the greatest impact.
