Across the school, Year 8 pupils have worked tirelessly to raise awareness, fundraise and engage with a variety of different Croydon charities. Numerous activities took place, including sponge the teacher, dodgeball, sponsored silences, bake sales and many more to tackle a variety of social issues.

Across the 8 weeks of fundraising, the pupils raised over £300, on top of the final £1,000 prize for our winning group. All classes selected one group to represent their class and showcase the hard work and dedication they have put in over the term.

All the pupils did excellently in their presentations, and did the school proud with their enthusiasm, effort and focus on the day of the final.

Winning the £1,000 for their selected charity was the class of 8C2/Qj3. They dedicated their time to Bromley and Croydon Women’s Aid and showcased their understanding of their charity through producing and performing an original song.

First Give were very impressed with all the students in Year 8 and gave a big congratulations and well done to the year for all their hard work.
