Charity

At Thamesview School we believe charity awareness is important. Participating in charitable fundraising is vital in developing a sense of citizenship and in promoting a broader sense of social responsibility. The benefits of these events are not always academically self-evident but it can be said that they bring a sense of common purpose and help to build a strong school ethos. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this year we’ve had to dramatically change how we run our charity program. We reduced the amount of activities we had planned and have aimed our focus on raising awareness. We are concentrating on charities that have impacted the lives of our students. Throughout the year, information about why these charities were picked and how they make a difference will be shared with the student body before each collection. In doing this, not only do our students get a chance to make a difference, their understanding of the world around them is broadened.

Events

18th and 25th September 2020 – Kings College Hospital Charity Collection (https://www.supportkings.org.uk/)

After a trampolining accident that nearly resulting in one of our Y9 students losing his arm, he decided to give back to the hospital that saved it. In addition to the school collection, he also   swan in the Hever Castle Charity Swim and came top in his age group, third overall. This is a great testimony to the wonderful work that the staff at Kings College Hospital do.

12th – 16th October 2020 – Thamesview Foodbank Collection (https://www.gofundme.com/f/thamesview-foodbank)

Every day people in the Gravesend go hungry for many reasons but just a small box of food can make a big difference. Our foodbank provides emergency food and supplies to the families of

our students who are in crisis and their need has never been greater than now. With job losses, illness and school holidays, donations make a great difference. If you or someone you know needs this help, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s Welfare Officer.

23rd October 2020 – Mary Seacole Trust (https://www.maryseacoletrust.org.uk/)

As part of  Black History Month, a group of Y11 students organised a presentation about the Black Lives Matter movement and what it means to members of our school and community. In addition to this, they arranged a collection to go to the Mary Seacole Trust as it has a vision that one day British society will become fairer, more inclusive and more harmonious. The trust also believes that overcoming exclusion and increasing participation by promoting equality will inspire good citizenship among the younger generation.

11th November 2020 – The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal (https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/get-involved/poppy-appeal)

Every year, we remember those who paid the greatest price for the freedom of our country. In addition to contributing to the Poppy Appeal, we pay our respects with a minutes silence and a reading of the poem “In Flanders Fields” by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae. Students who are in cadets are invited to come to school in their uniforms.
