Southam Primary School Council- Charity of the Year Project
As a school we would like to raise money during this year to support a charity. But we need to decide on which charity to support.
In your class you need to decide on which charity you feel our school should support.
To do this you will need to research charities, discuss which charities the children in your class feel that would like to support and the reasons for this. Then finally agree which charity your class would like to support.
You will then need to nominate some spokespeople from your class, who will talk to the rest of the school about your charity, giving reasons for why everyone in the school should fund raise for it.
Each class will then have the opportunity to present their nominated charity to the rest of the school.
After everyone has heard all the nominations and the reasons for supporting the charity, as a school we will vote to decide which charity we would like to support.
Once we have decided on the charity we are going to support this year, the school council will write to the charity and ask if someone from the charity could come in to school to talk to everyone about the work that they do and how any money that we raise will be used.
During the year you and your class will then need to organise some fund raising events to raise money for the charity.
Thank you to everyone who entered the School Council Virtual Pet Show in aid of the Dogs' Trust. We had a staggering 100 entries exactly and so £100 will be making it's way to the charity shortly. I am very glad I didn't have to judge them by myself as I would have found it impossible - it has been lovely to have my email inbox full of cute animal pictures over the last few weeks! School Council went through the entries at lunchtime and made the difficult decisions for me. The winners and runners up for each category are as follows - certificates and prizes will be distributed tomorrow. Thank you all again and congratulations to the winners!
