Our School Council votes on the charities that it would like the School to support each year. We also support national events such as the Macmillan Coffee Morning, Walk to School, Jeans for Genes Day, Red Nose Day and Children in Need.
The children suggest and organise many fundraising events themselves and The Friends of The Rowans School are active in supporting the chosen school charities each year.
For the academic year 2017-18 The Rowans School supported Momentum children’s charity and the international charity Liv2Educate, in South Africa. Through events run by children and parents, we raised money to redecorate a room in Kingston Hospital and sent money to LIV2Educate in order to sponsor two children through school there.
This year, we are supporting Homestart Merton and Escuala San Fransisco- a small school in Colombia. School Council have already planned fundraising events for these two charities and are hoping to provide Christmas presents for children in Merton as well as sending classroom resources to Colombia.
