Year 6 pupils raise money for Refugease
Year 6 pupils at Rose Hill School have been learning about migration in geography, history and religious studies, which culminated in all pupils completing a philanthropy project. Due to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, pupils decided to embark on a large scale fund raising programme, working hard to raise money for the local charity, RefugEase which is working with refugees in Ukraine.
All Year 6 pupils undertook events over a two-week period using their breaks and lunch times to plan and run them. Activities included cake sales, plant sales, parent swimming sessions, a parents’ netball tournament, chocolate tombola, dodgeball tournament, milkshakes for pupils and a lemonade stall.
Amanda Wren, Head of Geography said “We are incredibly proud of them for all their hard work and commitment to the projects. The whole school participated in Ukraine Day and individual pupils contributed by selling homemade cards, cookies and erasers. We are delighted to announce that their efforts raised a total of £2000.29 which has been sent to RefugEase”.
