Green Gates put the FUN into Fundraising!
Green Gates Primary Academy is a small school that prides itself not only on the personal and academic success of its pupils, but also on creating a school ethos with relationships and community at its heart. As part of this, we actively encourage all pupils to get involved in fundraising activities for both local and international charities. Although our starting point was altruistic, we've found that at the same time as raising money for others we're reaping rich rewards as a school.
Since the start of this academic year we have held a range of events to inspire our children to come up with their own fundraising ideas. For this year's Sport Relief, our older pupils led the way in enthusing and encouraging pupils and staff, creating a buzz and excitement that lasted throughout a whole week of activities.
Similarly, watching people coming out of their comfort zone has set a great example for some of our less confident pupils, who have learnt to worry less about how others perceive them. Fundraising has proved a liberating context for individuals to develop in new and exciting ways.
Pupils have gained a better understanding of, national and global organisations and have benefited immensely from the expertise and experience they offer. We have found that parents are particularly positive about this partnership working, actively encouraging their children to get involved and, in turn, supporting fundraising initiatives themselves.
