Gender Equality Group - Raising Awareness

On Friday our Gender Equality Team gave a short presentation about gender equality. They talked about how in many parts of the world women and girls are treated unfairly in terms of pay and opportunity. It was interesting to hear about how toys and clothes play a part in stereotyping children at a young age.

Meeting with Uma Okoro Foundation

posted 25 Oct 2017, 21:16 by Primary 7 Teacher

What better way to get to know more about the charity that you are helping than to meet the founder himself? Today we were honored to be joined by Mike Uma Okoro of the Uma Okoro Foundation. We were able to ask lots of questions and present our ideas. We had a great discussion about the children's needs and about the recent visit that he made to the orphanage to donate bags. It is always interesting to hear the plight of children in developing areas and this also helps us to appreciate what we have. Knowing that by making a small contribution we can make a big difference in the daily lives of others. A big thank you to Mike for giving up his time to come to speak to us and inspiring us with the great work that he has already done with his charity.

Pitching our ideas

posted 25 Oct 2017, 20:50 by Primary 7 Teacher   [ updated 25 Oct 2017, 20:52 ]

This week we were joined by our headteacher, Mr Freeman. This was a great opportunity to pitch our ideas and to get approval and further guidance. Now with greater clarity we were able to progress to the final stages of planning awith a view to implimenting our ideas in the near future. The Clean Water and Sanitation group now have a focus for fundraising, to organise a charity quiz night in March. A large list was drawn up of the things that need to be organised. It is going to be a very busy start to the new term for the team.

The Quality Education team leaders presented a sample of the "school in a box" idea and discussed the numbers we will need to provide to the orphanage. The Charity that supports the orphanage estimates between 40-45 boxes will be needed. Our target is to provide at least 30 of these with the charity auctioning off boxes at a charity night in early December.

The No Poverty group came up with the idea of providing a tuck shop to raise money to buy growing shoes. This is likely to be a big hit with fellow students. What a great way to learn about trade and ecconomics as well as raising money for a great cause. The team leaders hope to start after half term.
