Walpole Carnations go ahead virtually
Every year, carnation fever grips the King’s community ahead of Valentine’s Day. Walpole House takes thousands of orders and delivers personal messages across the school, and this year is no different, with carnations being emailed out in a virtual reimagining of the tradition.
Carnations aren’t just about sending anonymous messages to a secret crush. It’s about thanking people who have helped you, or good friends who have seen you through hard times.
The Walpole 6as, this year led by Head of House Millie Lark, organise the Carnations with the support of teachers.
Profits are donated to charity, and this year the Walpole girls have chosen to support two charities. Rising Sun, our school Charity of the Lent Term, which works to support women and children affected by domestic abuse, and Pilgrims Hospices who offer care and support to people with incurable illnesses.
As well as supporting such important causes, Carnations are a simple and valuable way of putting smiles on faces.
