As a caring and inclusive community, we encourage our students to consider others and offer help when possible. This could be something as simple as offering to carry shopping or helping a relative or neighbour with tasks around the home.
We also try to support local and national charities throughout the year, with a range of events, including annual fundraisers such as NSPCC Number Day, Children in Need and Comic/ Sport relief. In 2021-22 we are also running a whole school fundraiser on behalf of Unicef, with each year group devising their own ways of raising money to support the charities aim to supply Covid vaccines across the world.
Our students and staff also work hard to support local charities, such as Ruby's Fund and one very close to all our hearts, the Georgia Leigh Ogden Foundation, which was set up in memory of a much loved CHS student, who tragically lost her life in June 2020. You can see our total to date of funds raised in the image above - some £4,578.72 at the end of April 2022.
Please see below some of the recent examples of our charity successes.
Our fantastic Spring in a Frame Wildlife Competition and Exhibition was a great opportunity to showcase the wonderful photographic talents of our local young people whilst raising much needed funds for Ukraine.
CHS will host the Spring in a Frame 2022 Photography Competition Exhibition on May 18, and visitors will be able to enjoy all the wonderful images submitted by CHS and Eaton Bank students and primary school pupils from Congleton and surrounding areas.
