Festive Winter Gift Programme
Monday 4th December 2017
Our students are heating up winter with their compassion and humanitarianism as part of our Winter Gift Programme.
All students have made #iwill pledges to serve the community and those in need this winter. Pledges made – all students are working on their individual and class targets of raising money for refugees, nursing homes and the children’s ward at Blackburn Royal Hospital.
Despite the tumbling temperatures outside, things are getting heated up in school. Our students are taking part in their annual Winter Refugee Thermometer challenge. Setting personal targets and goals, students are working on a wide range of activities to raise money for refugees, our elderly in local nursing homes and children who will spend the festive period in our local hospital.
Tuesdays and Wednesdays student-led fun’raisers
During December, the school is holding two fun’raisers each week, led by students. The fun’raisers will include stalls selling scented candles, charms, confectionaries, jewellery and other goodies, as well as hosting competitions and games.
‘Bags of love’ to Local Nursing homes
Winter can be a lonely and sad time for the elderly, often distant from their families or having no family. Our Year 11 girls are raising money for gifts and goodies through a range of fundraising ideas over December. Students are visiting local nursing homes, including Springfield, Longfield and Northwood nursing home. They will be presenting gifts and offering kind messages of companionship, neighbourly love, songs and prayers.
Bringing cheer to the Children’s Ward
During winter, many children will be recovering from illness and injury in hospital. During this month, Year 10 students are visiting the children’s ward of Blackburn Royal Hospital to share gifts and bring a bit of cheer to young faces. Students will lead on various fundraising initiatives in the run up to their visit.
