CHARITY AND COMMUNITY
Care and consideration of others is exceptionally important to all in the school. There can be few schools that take their commitment to others as seriously.
What is important about how charity events and campaigns are organised is that they are generally as a result of the true nature of compassion within the student population. Bringing together so many talented individuals into a schooling system gives great scope for involvement with charitable and community activities, and these activities in themselves are great for education.
The values and ethos that created the school is illustrated in the work of the charity committee.
We seek to widen our work in the community by
- Developing the reflection that occurs through the action of support for others
- By deepening our understanding of others and creating a culture of empathy and sympathy
- By educating ourselves of the lives of others. So assemblies from charities such as Wellspring, Mental health and disability groups help us all develop an appreciation of others.
- Donations to organisations such as hospices also help students to see the care of others as a very personal aspect of life.
