Last term LGS raised £1350 for The Point Foundation, a small charity that works to support children living in orphanages in Rwanda. On 23rd February, the annual Years 7 & 9 inter-form rugby competition raised over £600 for this worthwhile charity. A couple of weeks later the Mathematics Department also ran a sponsored event to help the Point Foundation: the so called World Maths Day. The competition took place on 6th March and our Year 6,7,8 and 9 boys played a series of one minute arithmetic challenges on the internet with pupils around the globe and raised over £700.
With the money raised LGS will be able to pay for three University students, all orphans of the genocide in Rwanda, to complete their degree courses.
