Christ the King CVA takes great pride in its work supporting charities and many events across the academic year. As a school, we like to combine fun activities with charity work so that students (and teachers) of any age can get involved for a good cause.
For example, last year when the sun finally burst out from behind the clouds, the school took to the field to watch a charity penalty shoot-out competition. At one pound a go, many stepped up to the spot and took a strike against Mr Morgan, the intimidating figure stopping some, but seeing a few rifled efforts send the crowd wild. This was a brilliant and fun afternoon that raised hundreds for Children in Need.
Other examples of our contributions to the community include the regular cake sales across the school grounds – a sweet service that is a go to in helping us raise money for charity.
We also collect food around the Harvest Festival and donate the collections to local homeless charities, coinciding with our mission as a school to help contribute to the community around us.
Currently, a large motivation for charity work is funding the school’s trip to Cambodia – a trip that will see students and teachers travel to the country and do voluntary work for 4 weeks. Funding for the trip has been a persistent task that has seen car washes, hot chocolate sales and even a Christmas Fair take place; all in aid of this vocational trip.
Christ the King always takes pride in charity work and make an effort to carry out our mission as often as possible, so that we can provide for the community the way God would have wanted.
