Charities

Every year the school supports three charities: one local, one national and one international.  The pupils choose the charities they would like to support and will then embark on a variety of fundraising challenges, with their houses, throughout the year.  In recent years charitable events have included a whole school “Bake-Off” which resulted in the publication of a cookery book, a “24 hour Musicathon” and a sponsored fun run.  Charitable giving is at the heart of the school and organisations are invited to the school on a regular basis to talk to the pupils.

Recent charities supported have included:

  • Good Samaritan Fund of Haiti
  • Suffolk Animal Rescue
  • Rays of Sunshine
  • East Anglian Children’s Hospice
  • St Elizabeth Hospice
  • Facing the World
  • Meningitis Research Foundation

The charities supported last year were ICENI, Dementia UK and Rainforest Trust UK. Despite the lockdown and subsequent restrictions the pupils raised an amazing £6918  which meant that each charity was given £2,306. With good humour and great enthusiasm, pupils raised money in a variety of ways including the Year 8 sponsored ‘virtual walk’ to the Ardeche!

ORWELL PARK SCHOOL CALENDAR 2020-21

The A3 calendar has been produced using beautiful photos of the school. Some of the shots will not have been seen before, particularly the aerial ones!

The cost of the calendar is £10 and all proceeds will be going to our charity this year – FIND. In these very uncertain times we are delighted to be supporting such a worthwhile cause.
