Sixth Form: Charity
Poole High Sixth form is committed to raising awareness of issues in the local community and globally. We strongly encourage all students to take an active role in our charity work. The students themselves run the charity committee and are supported by a member of staff.
We are proud of our students who raise money every year in a variety of ways and are always looking for new ways to help. The choice of the charities we support varies from year to year.
This year the chosen charity is Guide Dogs for the Blind. Students set themselves the ambitious goal of raising enough money to pay for a guide dog for a local visually impaired person. The target is £1500 and this would allow the students the opportunity to name the puppy.
The Sixth Form fundraising raised £2000 and have been able to suggest names to name a guide dog puppy Two names were put forward – Edgar for a boy and Rolo for a bitch and these have been accepted by the Name a Puppy Team.
In the next few months a new puppy will be born and given one of these names and the Sixth Form will be able to follow their progress as they grow and develop.
The money was raised through a fair with every tutor group running a stall. Further money was raised by our Yr 14 lads, who bravely had their legs waxed in assembly. These, coupled with other events they have smashed the £1500 target.
It’s amazing isn’t it? What fantastic young people we have here at Poole High School.
