Within their My Quest Journey class, Year 8s are participating in the First Give programme.

Each class has selected their charity to raise money for and have begun the process of raising money with their own events and activities around the school.

The charities selected are: The South-East Cancer Hub, The Whitgift Foundation, Lives Not Knives, St. Christopher’s Hospice, Garwood Foundation, and Bromley and Croydon Women’s Aid.

The pupils have been engaged and excited by the different activities that they are in control of and creating. From film evenings, to bake sales to games tables – no area has been left unturned to raise money for local charities in Croydon!

The pupils shown great initiative to win the £1,000 prize from First Give for their chosen charity.

Keep an eye on the Academy website to stay tuned for images and updates on the pupils’ work.
