Here at Kingsdown and Ringwould CEP School, we teach our children about our responsibilities as a Christian community towards others on a local, national and global level. The school provides a wealth of meaningful opportunities for pupils to reflect on their responsibilities and offers opportunities for them to take action. On this page, we share some of the work we have been doing to help others, both in and out of school.
Diverse Books For All!
We were very lucky to recently receive a generous donation of new books for our classrooms. The books were funded and donated by the DealBooksForChange crowdfunding campaign, led by Austeja's mum (Y2). The campaign’s aim was to provide primary school libraries with a more diverse and inclusive range of fiction and non-fiction books, featuring diverse characters of colour, children with disabilities, strong female protagonists, and boys and girls that are not afraid to be different. Our wonderful PTFA also contributed to the campaign. The children have already been enjoying reading the books this week and discussing the themes that they promote.
Food Bank Superstar
Jessamine in Year 6, and part of the local scout group, organised and undertook a collection for the Deal Area Food Bank. With her family, Jessamine managed to collect over 150 well needed items. Jessamine advertised her mission to the Kingsdown community, who all helped her to achieve her goal. Jessamine was awarded a District Commissioner's Commendation Award for outstanding service and going above and beyond. Incredible!
School's Chosen Charity 2019/2020
In 2019, the school's charity monitors voted and decided that the school should fundraise for Breast Cancer Now, the research and care charity. Throughout the year, each class worked hard to run an event to raise money for the cause, which included a fun run, a film night and a cake sale. The total amount of money raised for the year was a whopping £2257.52
Love in a Box 2019
This year, we continued to support the Mustard Seed Relief Mission’s ‘Love in a Box’. The charity, which has been in operation for more than a decade, continues to spread joy, love and happiness to many thousands of disadvantaged children who feel truly loved by all those who send their ‘Love in a Box’. The boxes are given to under-privileged children throughout Eastern Europe. These children continue to look forward to and appreciate Christmas time when they receive their special present.
Our school community donated a brilliant 62 boxes!
