At Chandlings Prep we encourage our children to take an interest in the wider world and develop a responsibility for their local community.
As a school we support one charity each year and raise money in a variety of different ways. Each year PATCH (our Parents association) propose a number of local charities to the School Council. A shortlist is then put together by Council which is then sent out to the whole school to vote on.
In the Autumn term the whole school voted to choose Helen and Douglas House as our charity to support this year. PATCH worked alongside the Charity Ambassadors to raise a wonderful amount of money, in spite of weeks of lockdown.
Children are actively encourage to get involved in fundraising events and come up with their own ideas. PATCH also hold several events throughout the year supporting the charity.
Ice creams have been sold, Gifts for Grownups was a great success, and second hand uniform flew off the shelves - we are so grateful to Mrs Mullick and the PATCH members for all they have done! The Charity Ambassadors held their own incredibly successful event - Wildlife Friday was a non uniform day with a difference - pupils could contribute ANY amount and come dressed with a wildlife theme!
Thank you to our amazing Charity Ambassadors, Sophia, Ellie, Harry, Grace, Mark, Xanthe, Sofia and Anur, who have been an incredible, enthusiastic, creative, professional team.
Pupils' Social Development is Excellent. The variety of charity fund-raising events helps pupils understand their responsibility to assist those who are less fortunate, both at home and overseas.
