ACS Egham students welcome Great Ormond Street Hospital

GOSH care for over 20,000 patients every year, often young children who have serious and complicated medical conditions that cannot be treated elsewhere.
Students at ACS Egham International School welcomed a representative from the Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) to campus on Thursday 14th March, for an inspirational presentation on the specialist children�s hospital�s life-saving work.

Thursday�s presentation by the hospital was a great opportunity for ACS Egham students aged six to eleven to learn more about the world class hospital, and how the money they raise will help it treat children.

GOSH still relies heavily on charitable donations to continue to provide the best possible care, despite receiving funding from the NHS and being gifted the royalties of JM Barries children�s classic, Peter Pan

Cary Hart, Student Council co-ordinator and teacher at ACS Egham commented on the impact of the GOSH visit:

�GOSH is such a worthwhile organisation and we are really proud to support it this year. Their visit helped students gain a better understanding of GOSH�s work and how best we can support them and definitely inspired the students in their fundraising activities.�
