 Published on: 16th December 2020   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

Pupils from Kings Langley School have been busy with their charity challenge which is set to benefit four local charities.

The students in Year 12 at the school have been set the challenge in their tutor groups to carry out fundraising projects from October to March.

They will be supporting Mind Hemel Hempstead, Cancer Research UK, Two Oaks Pony Sanctuary and DENS.

Vicki Battaglia, KS5 pastoral and information, advice and guidance officer said that they encourage the students to support local charities in the challenge.

She said: “It’s to increase their awareness of the work local charities and they support that they give to the beneficiaries.”

Vicki added that heading into the new year, the students will have to work even harder to come up with creative ideas to support their charities.

She said: “This year is a lot harder for them because they are really going to have to think outside of the box to raise money.

“They will have to think even harder because of COVID and think about how they can do it in a safe environment.”

In order to do this, students will be working with the wider community in Kings Langley and beyond to support their charities. 

Jane Wright, pastoral lead for the sixth form, mentioned that some students are planning to have a design your own mask competition in the new year, which they hope to involve children from the local primary school and other members of the community.

She said: “The challenge is a good opportunity to get people from outside the school involved.”
