As part of our school vision, 'together we love, learn and grow', the support of charities and charitable acts is important to us all. The school focuses on a main charity, or charitable act, throughout the year and this is chosen and organised by our charity ministers. These ministers are democratically elected at the start of the year and take their role very seriously.
They organise presentations of a range of charities, then a vote and a charity is elected.
We have supported a range of charities over the last few years including The Guide Dogs, The Midlands Air Ambulance, St Richard’s Hospice, The Vale Wildlife Charity. Most recently we have chosen to lead charitable acts and the children have completed a kindness calendar and collected items for Caring Hands in Evesham.
We have also supported our school link in Tanzania by collecting used football kits as well as fundraising for inflatable balls for the children to play with. In turn we have been learning about life in Tanzania and we have received details of the girl we are sponsoring to attend school.
The school also supports Children in Need, Water Aid and Red Nose Day. An important event in our school calendar is our Harvest Festival when we collect and deliver Harvest baskets to the senior residents in our village. This act of kindness is always very much welcomed and we are inundated with kind 'thank you' messages afterwards.
We are pleased to present our new charity fundraising event for our school charity, ‘Acorns Children’s Hospice’.
With the help of our Charity Ministers we have created an online quiz for children to complete at home during the half term week. There are a variety of questions on the quiz which include film and TV, current pop music and there is even a section with questions about some of the teachers at school!
The quiz is 50p to enter, the entry fee can be paid on ParentPay, and all proceeds will go directly to Acorns. The children who score the highest score in the quiz will win a small prize.
Please email your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading QUIZ by 22nd February.
We wish everyone the very best of luck and we hope you enjoy completing our quiz and hopefully we can raise some money for our very special charity that we are supporting this year!
