At Meadlands, our “Work Hard & Be Kind” motto extends to helping others and we support many different charities during the school year.
Every year, pupils elect their main school charity after nominations, shortlisting, presentations and a students’ vote. Our charities this year are Born Free Foundation and JDRF. In 2018-19, we raised over £500 for Momentum Children's Charity and Battersea Dogs’ Home. However, we also support national events such as Children in Need, Comic Relief and Sports relief. Other good causes we have recently raised money for include the following:
The Junior Leadership Team are heavily involved in organising fundraising events, such as a staff ice bucket challenge, movie nights, Friday playtime biscuit sales, mufti days and summer fair stalls.
We have raised £100 to support funds to buy a new minibus that the local schools and children's clubs can use and we are proud to continue to support our friends at RUILS. Staff compete in running and 'tough mudder' events in support of RUILS and the children have raised further money through events held at school.
