Why does our school support charities and local good causes?
At Loxley C of E Community Primary School, we believe that it is important to teach children to give back to their communities and to help those in need. In this endeavour, we aim to support a wide range of local charities, national and worldwide causes throughout each academic year. Our work supporting charities also helps our children to further develop their core Christian values of Compassion, Friendship, Generosity, Hope, Justice, Respect and Thankfulness.
Below are just some of the examples of our recent efforts for good causes...
As part of an exciting community project to brighten up the Children’s Accident and Emergency Department at Warwick Hospital, the children in Classes 2 and 3 were asked to design a 59cm x 59cm ceiling tile. The children followed the theme of ‘A Healthy Imagination’ as well as trying to think about what might reassure or distract poorly or injured children whilst receiving care. The children will now paint their colourful designs onto the tiles, provided by the hospital, which will be installed into the new ceiling. They have all enjoyed being part of such a worthwhile project.
*UPDATE* The tiles are complete and have now been collected by Eileen Rock, Fundraising Manager for the South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust. It won’t be long before these winning designs are installed to brighten up the refurbished Children’s A & E Department at the hospital - we hope to take the children who designed the tiles to see their impact in situ very soon!
*FURTHER UPDATE* The tiles are now fully installed and the children had a great time vising the department to see first hand the difference their art work is making to poorly children in hospital.
The Salvation Army
Follow the link underneath to find out how we have supported The Salvation Army by recycling our old clothes. More than 20 bags of recycled clothes were collected from school on Friday 22nd March and the proceeds raised from their sale will help to raise much-needed funds for Loxley Primary School whilst also helping this worthwhile cause AND caring for our environment!
*UPDATE* Loxley Primary School were COUNTY WINNER for our recycling efforts for the charity and the campaign's mascot, Michael, made a surprise visit to the children in assembly on Tuesday 7th May to present them with a special certificate and trophy - well done, Loxley!
Red Nose Day 2019
On Friday 15th March, children and staff were invited to wear something red to school (including red noses if they wished!) in exchange for a recommended donation of £1 in support of Comic Relief 2019. £30 was raised. Well done, children!
