A Message from Alison Patterson

Monday 12th October marked the 7 year anniversary of my daughter, Lauren Patterson’s murder. Lauren taught in the Primary School at St George’s, before moving to Qatar to teach, many of you see her memorial as you drop off your children at the kiss and fly. Over the years, St George’s staff, teachers and parents have kindly helped support the Lauren Patterson Memorial School in Uganda and have raised money to help them maintain education for the local children in Uganda. This year I wanted to do something positive on the 7 year anniversary, so I have decided to help the school in Uganda reopen for the first time since Covid-19 struck.

I am sure you as parents were a little, if not a lot worried about sending your child/ren back to school during these difficult times. Yet I think we are so privileged to be living here, where we often take our circumstances for granted.
For instance, the school in Uganda needed a well or borehole on the compound just to get water. Social distancing has been a challenge to put in place at schools in Luxembourg but imagine being in Uganda where 4 children often have to share one desk. The Lauren Memorial School is only operating now because of the kindness of staff and parents like you donating and fundraising.

I am fundraising for all the extra costs of disinfectant, temperature guns, soap and of course masks so that the school can reopen for the children who will sit their final exams this year and for the rest of the school that will return in 2021. Any donations would extremely appreciated.

Thank you for your generosity.

Alison Patterson.
