School raises £14,000 for charity
Pupils, parents and staff donated a colossal amount of money to help children less fortune than themselves through a Ramadhaan appeal which raised over £14,000.
Throughout the month of Ramadhaan, pupils thought long and hard about how fortunate they are to have access to a good education whilst living comfortable lives in comparison to others around the world.
The school’s annual Ramadhaan appeal was kick started with a charity football tournament on the school’s new artificial turf pitches, which raised £325.
The appeal continued with activities to raise awareness among pupils of helping those less fortunate than themselves and to raise as much money as possible. A Save the Children representative visited the school to explain to pupils the impact of donations upon poverty stricken children elsewhere and a Spirituality Day was themed upon the importance of Ramadhaan donations
The Ramadhaan appeal reflects the STAR values – Service, Teamwork, Ambition and Respect, which all pupils and staff are encouraged to live by.
The donations were used to educate a child, with each £200 funding a year’s education for a Syrian Child and to purchase Eid Gifts, with a donation of £10.
Principal Sue Gill-Daintith said:
“The generosity of pupils, staff and their families has been nothing short of incredible. Everyone has risen to the challenge of helping those less fortunate than themselves both in the local community and in war-torn countries. We are extremely proud as a school community that we have reached a total that will truly make a difference to the lives of others.”
