School Charity Committee
The MacMillan Cancer Coffee morning is our first event of an academic year with staff baking up a storm for everyone to enjoy in the staff room at break time.
November provides an opportunity to support Children in Need with the Year 14 Charity Committee organising the events such as the Annual Year 14 Fancy Dress Competition, a non-uniform day and in recent years a Year 14 sponsored leg Wax with the help of the trainees from SERC!
At Christmas we accept food donations for our local food bank, helping to support families within our local community while pupils get to enjoy a Christmas jumper day that coincides with our lovely Christmas lunch.
In April, our annual Bag Drop takes place for Action Cancer with members of the Year 14 Charity Committee out in the driveway before school to collect donations from parents and guardians as they drop their child off. Action Cancer then collect the donations to be sold in their shops.
Each year we have Year 13 relay teams taking part in The Belfast City Marathon in May, to raise funds for The NI Children’s Hospice, and the fundraising for this begins in February.
In June we have a sponsored walk with our junior school pupils. which is a great opportunity to exercise, relax with friends and raise money as we stroll along the coastal path to Crawfordsburn and back. The total amount raised is divided up between the charities chosen by each year group.
Community is at the heart of our school mission statement, and we thank every family who helps support us with our charity donations.
