Community

Milford Haven School is proud to serve the town of Milford haven and its surrounding community. As the only secondary school within the town we pride ourselves on our unique position and recognise the role we play in shaping the community.

As a school we are proud of our links with local businesses and services. Whenever possible we draw on the expertise within our community to help enrich the educational experiences of our learners. We work closely with local and national employers to ensure our learners are equipped with the skills needed not only to excel in education but also for the future world of work.

We place community at the very heart of charity work and are proud of learners who support the needs of both the local and wide community through fundraising events such as community bingo, meals for the elderly, Christmas Fayre, Race for Life and Children In Need events.

MHCCC- Milford Haven Community Covid Care
Back in July Gemma Baker (Milford Haven School) and Dayle Gibby (Milford Youth Matters), were successful in jointly securing a grant fund from the Big Lottery Community Fund. The project was named Milford Haven Community Covid Care, and sought to engage with the community of Milford Haven to support residents that had been negatively affected by CVD19 and the surrounding circumstances. 
 
As you can see below, with the grant money received a huge amount of resources and support was injected into Milford Haven over the 5 week summer period:
*165 meal packs were distributed, along with 35 vege packs and supplements
*25 Healthy cookbooks, written by a local nutritionist
*90 Boredom Buster activity packs for young people age 0-16
*52 children’s craft packs, and a large donation of resources to Havenhurst care home for residents
*Over 500 reading books 
*135 reusable sanitary pad packs, & 1344 organic environmentally friendly single use sanitary pads with recyclable packaging

Dayle Gibby (Milford Youth Matters) has said, “It has been absolutely fantastic to work in partnership with Milford Haven School. It was an honour to deliver these services to young people and the wider community during these difficult and unprecedented times. I look forward to working with the school again in the future, we continue to look for as many avenues as possible to support local residents that need our help.”

Milford Haven School are proud to have set up the ‘MHCCC‘ project with Milford Youth Matters, we feel it has benefited our school community on a large scale during a time when need was truly great. We would like to thank the Big Lottery Community Fund for their financial support, without you none of this would have been possible. Diolch yn fawr. 
Macmillan Coffee Morning
As many of you will already know the Macmillan Coffee Morning been extremely well supported here at Milford Haven School over recent years. Sadly it wasn’t possible for us to invite the community into school this year as we have previously done- so we got creative to try and think of a way to still support this worthy cause, and came up with the idea of treat boxes for staff. Although it wasn’t a large scale event as in previous years, we continued the tradition of supporting the Macmillan coffee morning – but Covid style for 2020. This year we have raised just under £250 for Macmillan, and as always are so proud of our school community for all they do to support a variety of charities.
A special thank you to Ms Sizer for baking her heart out all week, Katie and Maureen who we could not have done this without, and the wonderful 6th form helpers that packed and delivered each order this morning.
