Community Challenge Project 2013

Community Challenge Project 2013
18th June 2013 admin

The Community Challenge Project 2013 took place between the 15th and 17th May. All KS3 students were encouraged to take part in a project, no matter how big or small, which they felt would benefit their local community in some way. The project aims to demonstrate to students that they can make a difference, whether it impacts on an individual, a group or the community as a whole.

Every individual has the power to make a difference; it starts with you!

The response from students was fantastic! Many, many students took part in both individual and group activities. A number of charities and community organisations contacted ASA to compliment us on our students and the way in which they conducted themselves during the project.

Students were asked to bring in some evidence of their projects; projects were then judged by Principal Mr Chubb. Mr Chubb wanted to reward a range of projects, of varying scale, from both individuals and groups, to reinforce the message that anyone can make a difference or positive change in their community.

Projects included:
Fundraising for charities
Collecting food donations
Helping lots of individuals with jobs and chores
Serving beverages and snacks for community and vulnerable groups
Litter picking
Making get well cards for those recovering in hospital
Volunteering in charity shops
Collecting people’s unwanted goods to take to charities
Visiting primary schools to talk to Year 6 students about starting secondary school
Delivering Football workshops to primary school children

    I am incredibly proud of all of our students for making such a massive contribution to the community project – especially the successful students from Whitby House. Well done!

    Remember that each and every project has helped our community and improved someone’s life for the better. More proof that our students are wonderful.
