Fundraising at Bowlish Infant School.
It is a tradition at Bowlish Infant School to support a charity each year with a focus on local charities whenever possible. The School Council members meet to discuss ideas for fundraising and this year our Kindness Ambassadors have been able to help too.
School in a Bag
In 2018 - 2019 our fundraising supported a charity based in Somerset called 'School in a bag'. The charity works to help orphan, vulnerable and disaster affected children throughout the world. Each school bag is filled with stationery equipment and resources that will enable the children to access learning through having the right equipment to take to school or to access learning in their community if they are displaced and unable to attend a school. This was a very worthy charity to support and the children learnt about the conditions that many children in different parts of the world have to deal with in order to access learning. To find out more about the charity please visit their website at www.schoolinabag.org. Please visit our news page for photographs of the children raising money and packing the school bags!
Guide Dogs for the Blind and Happy Landings
The School Council decided to support two charities this year which are 'Guide Dogs for the Blind' and 'Happy Landings' animal sanctuary.
The school has currently raised £479 which will be split between both charities in July 2018.
Look out in the Autumn Term for an announcement of the charity selected for 2018-2019!
