Since 2014, we have established good links with the Sue Ryder charity foundation. Our pupils and families help support the elderly citizens of a local residential centre in Prague 4. We have been fortunate that a number of our pupils have been able to spend time visiting the centre and gaining so much from talking to the residents about their personal history and experiences.
Every year we run our ‘Shoe box appeal.’ Our Key Stage 2 pupils (Years 3-6) write a letter in their Czech lessons to go into the boxes asking the residents about their many experiences.
All pupils then decorate an unsealed shoe box and fill it with some suitable ‘Food goodies’ to send to the residential care centre.
The residents and carers really appreciate receiving the letters and ‘Food goodies’ and in turn it is a valuable experience for our pupils, in supporting their local community.
In addition, we run a number of pupil-led charity events throughout the year to raise funds for the Sue Ryder foundation.
Please see the below link for further details.
