At our school we encourage the children to harness a strong community spirit – both locally and nationally. Over the course of the academic year we support a range of charities and raise funds as appropriate. We support national campaigns such as Sport Relief and Children in Need. We also support charities that the children have either shown an interest in or have a connection to; for example we have supported Blue Cross and Shelterbox.
We also fundraise for our link school in Kabuwambo; an ongoing charity connection. Kabuwambo is in Uganda and Mr Dixon went to visit the school and took along a suitcase full of supplies for the children. We regard this as an important link for us and for Kabuwambo school; we learn a great deal about Uganda and feel that the merit of the link is a mutual one.
