Students at The Coleshill School are really getting into the Christmas spirit! At the start of December, Year 7 students were given the challenge of completing an advent calendar with a difference – ‘A Random Acts of Kindness’ advent calendar. Each day they completed a different act of kindness, encouraging them to help others and make a difference to someone else.
On Friday 13th December 2019, staff and students at The Coleshill School wore Christmas jumpers and festive accessories to raise money for Save the Children. On the same day, Sixth Form students put on a Teachers’ Talent Show at lunchtime and students paid 50p each to join in the fun. They raised an amazing £194 for the Salvation Army.
On Monday 16th December 2019 students held a Christmas Fair and donated prizes for a tombola. Each of the school’s four Houses chose a charity, they each ran a stall and all money raised was given to their chosen charity.
Jane Oberg, Teacher of English, commented: “Our students have shown such kindness in thinking of others at this festive time. Save the Children is a great cause and this is our sixth year taking part. It has gone from strength to strength as students have enjoyed wearing their festive jumpers and accessories. It was also great to see our Sixth Form students organising an event to raise money for the Salvation Army.”
