As a school, Harleston Primary works hard to give back, not just to the local community but to the global community through continuous fundraising. Through the hard work of the Governors, Friends committee, teachers and children we have been able to make a difference to a wide variety of causes;
To Kenya with Love:
For a few years now, we have been supporting Ibrahim Abdala, a young child in Kenya, enabling him to be provided with a school uniform, shoes, extra tuition, text books and other stationary. This year we are hoping our fundraising will help in the building of a permanent, two-storey primary classroom block.
Red Nose Day/Comic Relief:
Children and teachers always enjoy the dressing up days we have to help fundraise for these two charities. In March this year, we were able to raise over 495 pounds for Red Nose Day!
A cause close to our hearts, children decided to raise money through a non-school uniform day. The 260 pounds contributed to new state-of-the-art equipment, specialist staff and research.
The Children’s Society:
Children at Harleston Primary often want to help those less fortunate than themselves. This is why we were able to raise and donate 815 pounds for the Children’s Society who work hard to make childhood better.
The Buckenham Emergency Food Appeal:
At Christmas time, there is always fundraising and goodwill around. Last year, the school collected bags of sugar to help the homeless.
Seeds for Africa:
Every year at for the Harvest Festival we fundraise to help different causes in Africa. Last year we supported Seeds for Africa, a charity which helps African families and communities by the provision of seeds, agricultural equipment and relevant technical advice.
We already have more fundraising ideas in the pipe line and look forward to being able to help and support more important causes.
