One great way to learn about incorporating charity work into the school is to follow the example of others. Here is a list of schools that are incorporating charity activities into their curriculum and making it work. Below the link is a few words from each school about their program.
“The Deanes School has a strong history of supporting Charities and raising large amounts of money through fund raising. Our students diligently apply themselves to helping less fortunate people and embrace each challenge with enormous enthusiasm.”
“Charity events are part of life at Kingshott. We are proud of the contribution that pupils and their families make to a wide range of events that are organised at house, year group and the whole school level. Each year approximately £6500 is distributed to a range of causes. It is arguably of equal importance that our pupils have learnt first-hand about the objectives of a range of causes. This exposure for some will act as a catalyst for lifelong support of a particular cause. We welcome representatives from a range of charities each year to contribute to the PSHE programme and to attend different events that are organised.
Our charity work helps our pupils to
• develop an awareness of the need in the local, national and international settings
• respond to identified needs both as individuals and as groups
• support (and at the top end of the school organise) a range of events that generate funds for a designated cause
• develop a sense of community”
“Each academic year a pupil is appointed Head of Charities, with a pupil representative from each House on the Charities Committee. Over the course of the year each House organises fundraising events for their chosen charity. “
