Year 1 donated their old reading books to Ungana Academy in Nakuru, Kenya.
The school is in an area of high poverty, so donations like these make a huge impact.
Children and staff alike were thrilled to receive the books.
As a community, Springhill support a range of charities throughout the year.
In 2015/16 we have supported a diverse range of charities in many different ways. These include:
Sport Relief – we wore red socks and the whole school took part in a relay
CAFOD – some Year 6 girls organised a cake sale, some Year 5 girls arranged , Foundation and the whole school collected loose change in milk bottles
Syrian refugees – We collected gifts for children at Christmas and Year 4 had a fundraising talent contest
Society of St James – produce was donated to this homeless charity after our harvest celebrations
Talking Books for the Blind – donations at musical concerts
Royal British Legion – selling poppies
Children in Need – we wore silly socks and bright tights.
In total, we have raised over £2000 for good causes as a school community in 2015/16.
So far this year, we have collected goods for Southampton City Mission’s Foodbank and we will be collecting for Children in Need and the Royal British Legion during November.
