Kings Academy Ignites Compassion: Annual Charities Week Raises Money for Local, National, and Global Causes
December 15, 2023
Kings Academy, known for its commitment to community engagement, recently concluded its annual Charities Week. The week-long event, a staple highlight in the school calendar, is masterfully organised and executed by dedicated staff and students at Kings.
Thousands Pounds Raised for Key Causes
Every year, students come together to raise thousands of pounds for three carefully chosen charities: this year they chose local charity The Space who work very closely with Kings Academy and UNICEF, after being awarded the prestigious UNICEF Silver Award for the Rights Respecting Schools Award earlier this year. This unique approach reflects Kings Academy’s dedication to making a positive impact at various levels.
Education and Awareness at the Core
Underpinning the success of Charities Week is a year-long effort by the student senior team and House Captains to educate and raise awareness about the chosen charities. House assemblies and themed weeks are platforms for disseminating information, fostering understanding, and encouraging a spirit of philanthropy among students and staff. Charities week itself is an exciting mix of performances and fundraising activities, creating a lively school environment throughout the week!
Themed Weeks and Engaging Assemblies
Throughout the year, students are treated to themed weeks that delve into the missions and impact of the selected charities. The student senior team and House Captains play a crucial role in delivering engaging and informative assemblies that not only educate but also inspire empathy and action.
