Sixth Form Charities
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.
Every year we are also actively involved with comic relief day. The highlight of the day is the talent show. Every tutor group submits an act and this year these ranged from an energetic rock band to a hilarious synchronised swimming display. The winning act was a breath-taking gymnastics routine which at times defied belief. This high energy day put a smile on many faces.
In the run up to Christmas our students thought about children who were not as fortunate themselves and decided to take part in the Romanian Shoebox Appeal. The aim was for each tutor group to collect, decorate and fill 10 shoeboxes with presents and items which were then shipped to Romania. In all the students managed to fill 118 boxes which were gratefully received and provided luxury items for families who struggle to provide food and fuel needed to survive.
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.
