All pupils are encouraged to help organise and support a range of activities to contribute to local and national charities. In doing so we feel it is important to raise their awareness that there are people in the world less fortunate, and that people’s practical needs can be met.
Pupils are regularly involved in various events and themed days to raise funds for worthy local and national causes. Last year we supported a number of worthy charities and good causes including WE Day, LEPRA and the NSPCC.
WE Day is a charity project with the aim of raising global awareness and encouraging children to make an impact in our local and global communities. Children are challenge to think about the everyday issues that the charity supports such as poverty, pollution, animal cruelty, littering and many more. In March some pupils got the opportunity to attend the WE Day celebrations held at Wembley Arena.
Den Day -Save the Children
Coopersale Hall School held a special event on Tuesday 27 June. All pupils had the opportunity to build dens for Save the Children’s Den Day and raise funds that will change children’s lives.
Our pupils joined children across the UK to unleash their imaginations and transform the school grounds into amazing dens.
On the day pupils built dens out of everyday materials such as cardboard boxes, sheets and sticks. Parents were invited to come and view their children’s dens before the end of their school day.
Some chosen charities over recent years have been:
- WE Day
- Children in Need
- Local Care Homes
- Guide Dogs for the Blind
- Essex Air Ambulance
- And many more…
