Head of School Council
School council discussed and chose the following charities to support this academic year:
Friends of Mombasa Children
Ferring Country Centre
Details of events will be discussed and the children will decide how to raise money and awareness of these chosen charities.
School Council was amazed and felt incredibly grateful by the number of cakes and baked goods that were brought into school. We wanted to help local charities this year and to continue to support Mencap (www.worthingmencap.org/) with the work they do in our community.
When the cakes went on sale, the generosity of our school (and love of cake) shone through, and we raised an impressive £455.12!
How to Behave At School
School council reviewed the 'How to Behave at School' poster that features in every classroom. They made alterations from the previous years, with a focus they felt was particularly important: bullying. They stated that bullying can be emotional and physical and that neither is ever acceptable or welcome in our school.
Visit from Friends of Mombasa Children
On Tuesday 8th November, we were visited by Norbert Werre (Principal of Unity School in Kenya) together with representatives from the Friends of Mombassa Charity Karyn Hinks and Chris Azzaro. They shared a video in assembly that showed Unity school and the children there and Mr Norbert Werre shared how the money raised here in Broadwater has been used. He thanked the children for their support with the Danceathon fundraiser and presented a certificate thanking Broadwater for the donations from this event. As a school, Broadwater will continue to work to support the Friends of Mombassa charity, to support the work that it does to help provide education for children in Kenya. The School Council is already considering how we can best do this.
