Pupils take the initiative

Worth School

Our socially conscious pupils are planning and leading initiatives to raise money for one of the School’s flagship charities.

As part of our activities programme, Worth offers weekly clubs and societies covering creativity, skills, volunteering, service and physical activity. One of our new clubs this year is a club dedicated to Mary’s Meals, a charity which gives children in impoverished countries one meal every day they attend school. In doing so the charity gives young people hope and, through education, a possible route out of poverty.

Our weekly Mary’s Meals club encourages responsibility and leadership among our pupils to support the work of this wonderful charity. As well as learning more about what the charity does, the pupils explore new ways to campaign, raise funds and awareness for the mission of Mary’s Meals.

Already, they have arranged a home clothes day for all pupils in March and a popcorn stall at the School’s forthcoming Middle School drama production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, both of which should raise a significant amount of money. Other fundraising proposals are currently being worked on.

Worth supports two schools through Mary’s Meals: the Farsee Korma Public School in Liberia and the Mwandakwisano School in Zambia. Since establishing a partnership with the charity in 2017, the Worth community has raised a staggering £42,798 for Mary’s Meals. It costs £19.15 to feed a child for a whole school year.
