Charitable Activities

Supporting Honourable Causes

Throughout our curriculum and pastoral care agenda we encourage our pupils to be sensitive to community issues and to be proactive in supporting honourable causes.

One way that this manifests itself is in their involvement in charitable work.

The charities they support range from national charities such as Cancer Research, Red Nose Day, Children in Need, Water Aid, British Legion Poppy Appeal, to local community charities such as St Bartholomew’s Church Appeals, Manchester Children’s Hospital, The Christie Hospital and East Cheshire Hospice.

 

Charitable Activities

Activities they undertake vary. Of course there are the sponsored dressing down/dressing up days, and the sponsored walks/laps/lengths. There is even a sponsored obstacle course for the Nursery children.

There are sales of cakes (from the baking club), French food (from the pupil run French café), Match Attax and Moshi Monster markets, Doves of Peace for the Church Christmas Tree, as well as collecting for the annual Poppy Appeal.

Singing is important too; performing in care homes, shopping centres, and this year, they also raised money from a Big Sing choir, learning and performing numbers from the Musicals in one day.

In 2014 the children raised over £2,500 from 12 separate initiatives for charity. This excludes sums raised by the Parents Association.
