Each year our School Council decide on three charities to support. One is within the local community, one within the UK and the third outside the UK. Charities we have supported recently include Mary’s Meals, Sport relief, The Children’s Trust at Tadworth, ‘Pageant’ supporting various schools and families in Gambia, ‘Send My friend To School’, ‘Water Aid’ and ‘YMCA Disability Access’.
Check back here later this term to see which charities we will be supporting this year.
Last year, we raised £701.61 at our Charities Day and this was equally split between 3 charities: ‘Send My friend To School’, ‘Water Aid’ and ‘YMCA Disability Access’ who all received £233.87. The children from School Council came up with the original plans for the day, involving everyone in this exciting venture and including the staff, many of whom were pretty well wet through by lunchtime!
Children in Need
On Friday 18th November, the school was awash with children, staff and parents dressed in their pyjamas, onesies, spots and Pudsey ears in support of Children in Need. So far, we have raised the fantastic sum of £664.24 - well done to everyone for their support!
