Charity Work at TASS

As a school with a strong Christian ethos, we actively encourage our children to be aware of the needs of others, to think about how they can respond to help people in situations worse than their own & to realise their responsibilities as citizens.

Aside from the usual Children in NeedRed Nose Day plus our very own Enterprise Project with YMCA White Rose, we have loads of requests to do things for charity in school. Some children will also do charity events in their spare time out of school, but we still ask them to share what they have achieved & make other children aspire to make a difference. Needless to say, we are extremely proud of all that they achieve!!

To hold a charity event at school, children first of all have to pitch their idea to the Headteacher, plan out their event using formal proformas, create a Powerpoint show & then have to present to the school. Only then are they ready to go ahead with the actual event. We find that this process helps our children to think carefully about all of the aspects involved in planning an event as well as shows off their commitment to making something happen! We have children from all age groups getting together to do this – there is no age limit.

Here are just a few of the many amazing things that our children got up to for charity:

 

Y4 Girls Bun Sale

In October, a group of  Y4 Girls held a Bun Sale in aid of St Luke’s Hospice & managed to raise a fantastic £56.00! Well done, girls!
