Charity and Community Links
As a church school we always try to think of those in need who deserve our support and generosity. Much of our charity work is co-ordinated by the School Council, who often plan and run fundraising events throughout the school year.
The children themselves, through our School Council, choose which charities we support. The help which our chosen charities provide covers many things, but each charity must do one of the following: -
- Give relief from poverty.
- Help with education.
- Be of benefit to our community.
Each class takes responsibility for planning and leading a fundraising day for their chosen charity.
Charity fundraising events for 2020-2021
REVERSE ADVENT CALENDAR - 14/12/20
We have been busy in school collecting items for the Welcome Centre, a local food bank charity in Huddersfield. The Welcome Centre provides local families and individuals in crisis with food, toiletries and other essential items. Many thanks to the children, parents and staff for all your kind donations! They will be much appreciated by local families in need this Christmas.
CHILDREN IN NEED - 13/11/20
On Friday 13th November, Year 2 planned and led a fundraising day to raise money for Children in Need. We came to school wearing non-uniform and each class decorated their own Pudsey Bear. These were judged by Year 2 and two winners were selected from each class. We raised over £160 for Children in Need, well done Ardron!
