Charities enjoy fundraising from school
Pupils at a Staffordshire school have been praised for their fundraising efforts.
Chase Grammar School is an independent, co-educational school, with an integrated Preparatory School and 2 year old nursery.
It also works to help its pupils develop through a unique Chase Passport, which is a tool for them to set targets to develop qualities such as collaboration, creativity, decision making and empathy.
Over the past 12 months, the pupils have worked to raise funds for three different charities, with the three Houses, Parton, Lee and Tylecote selecting a charity and arranging charity events and fundraisers, such as bake sales, car washes and summer fair stalls.
From these fundraising efforts, the pupils raised £2417.86 for the three charities, with Lee raising £1018.14 for Compton Care, Tylecote raising £821 for Make a Wish and Parton raising £578.72 for Cancer Research.
Representatives of each charity were in attendance at a special assembly at the school on Friday, September 27, where they were each presented with the funds raised for their charity.
The Principal Michael Hartland praised the pupils for their hard work and achievements.
He said: "We believe in the values of empathy of collaboration at Chase Grammar School and celebrate them through our “Chase Passport” which develops students’ characters and learning strengths.
"I am absolutely delighted that our students have been able to raise over £2000 for our nominated House Charities.
"For a school of 310 students, I think this is a wonderful achievement, and we look forwards to continuing to work with the charity sector in 2019-20."
