Samba workshop, poetry slam, French theatre performance, business activity day, a reading book for every new year 7 student, science activity day on renewable energy, ‘Closer to The Edge’ activity centre – maybe you heard about these events during last year. These activities were either fully or partly funded by King Charles I School Appeal Trust.
“I was scared but I had a go” is one comment about eh activity centre. On the science activity “I really liked it because it was interesting to put the panels on the windmill and see how it can be made to go faster, more panels did not always mean it went faster.” From the French theatre performance ‘’It was really interesting to see how much I understood, even though I thought I wouldn’t!’’
Each year, we ask for bids from the staff for new and exciting events or equipment that they know will help their students, but they can’t be provided from normal school funding. We fund this by using income from legacy investments, and also from individual contributions from parents and carers.
Last year, we also decided to cash in some of our legacy investment and we were able to provide a brand new mini bus for the school.
We want to be able to continue making regular grants for the foreseeable future. If you feel you can help by making a small contribution each month then please download our standing order form which you can find at http://www.kingcharlesschool.co.uk/index.php/appeal-trust.
