Human Care Syria is a charity that encompasses the values of humanitarian aid without borders. Their projects stand for providing emergency humanitarian and medical aid, but more importantly, long-term projects which can alleviate poverty and suffering through educating and empowering individuals.
Human Care Syria has carried out projects such as:
- women’s hygiene and sanitation
- emergency relief
- child development
- food security
These are core values that we stand for as a school and are taught as we are growing up. We can relate to this charity’s beliefs and would love to help them! Education and empowerment are essential in improving the quality of life, improving employment rates and most importantly, improving healthcare. By helping refugees in Syria, we can pass on these values and make a difference however big or small.
To support this worthy cause, we are organising a Bollywood Themed Fashion Show that includes, food, dancing, live DJ, henna and runway shows. It will be an amazing night and we’d love to see you there supporting this charity!

Hi, we are the charity committee.
Our names are Zona, Amelia, Asraa, Sophia, Mahjabin, Bella, Evie, Olivia, Laura and Sadie and we will be your charity committee for this year. We are all very passionate about helping others and are looking forward to organising key charity events at AGGS. Last year, the school was very successful in raising money and we hope that this coming year will be just the same!
Upcoming events include the Macmillan Coffee Morning Cake Sale and the Harvest Festival. We would really appreciate any cake donation for the cake sale on the 28th September.
We would like to encourage everyone at the school to donate to the charities that we support – even just a few pennies can make a big difference if enough people contribute. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far!

Charity day was an enormous success!
Beginning with the year 13 pantomime we saw students being put to the test at AGGS -with the prize of an “Alty boy” if they survived! Challenges ranged from cakes in food tech to getting past the one way system and Donald Trump. Teachers and students enjoyed it and the song was the perfect end. Continue reading Charity day 2016
Children in Need Day was a great success and altogether we raised £155. Thank you to Mrs Clutton and the girls who baked the Pudsey Bear cakes for the cake sale at lunch on Wednesday. Some girls came to school with spotty nails for the day and there was a ‘How many sweets in the jar?’ competition. There were 70 and Ashbah 7-1 guessed closest with 68.
Thank you to everyone who took part.
