As a school, Harleston CE Primary Academy 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 young children in Kenya, helping to provide them with school uniforms, shoes, extra tuition, text books, other stationary, and development of school buildings.
Red Nose Day/Comic Relief:
Every year children and teachers always enjoy dressing up to help fundraise for this charity.
The Children’s Society:
Children at Harleston Primary Academy often want to help those less fortunate than themselves. We donate to the Children’s Society who work hard to make childhood better. Funds are raised at our Christingle Service and our Nursery and Reception class Nativity plays.
Waveney Food Bank:
Every year for the Harvest Festival we collect dry and canned foods. Last year we were able to provide enough food for 135 meals!
We are pleased to say that £510.52 was raised for the last Poppy collection in school.
Children In Need/Red Nose Day:
These days are very popular with the children at Harleston Primary Academy. We hold a bake sale and non-uniform day (with some very inventive costumes) in aid of these charities. Thank you to all parents and pupils who make these days a great success.
In the Autumn term 2021 we raised funds for the charity that supports families with pulmonary hypertension. Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) is a rare condition that causes high blood pressure in the blood vessels connecting the heart and lungs.
Our school community did a brilliant job and raised over £900 for the charity. This will make a massive difference to the work that they do.
A big thank you goes to all parents/carers, pupils, community and family members who help, bake, donate and take part in our fundraising events.
We already have more fundraising ideas in the pipeline and look forward to being able to help and support more important causes.
