Bringing together so many talented individuals into a schooling system gives great scope for involvement with charitable and community activities, and these activities in themselves are great for education.
Our students welcome the challenge of being actively involved in raising much needed funds for worthy community causes through initiatives such as walkathons, door knocking appeals and charity days both during school hours and in their own time.
A responsible outlook in relation to humanity is encouraged in our students and through the schools Current Affairs program understanding is enhanced as to events that have ramifications on a local, national and global scale.
Our Donations to Charity:
This often involves all students in the school to spend their time and effort in achieving these substantial results. Caledonia Campus has raised more than £40,000 over the last 8 years for a number of charities. Recipients include major hospitals, heart foundations, cancer awareness groups, emergency services, and local charities.
The ‘Red Cross Fund’ was amazed at their donation from Caledonia Campus of £1500.00. They commented:
“The generosity and broad mindedness of your students is exceptional – Thank You”
One of the events raised £524.10 for McMillan Cancer Support.
Examples of other recipient charities:
British Heart Foundation
Macmillan Cancer Support
Aberdeen & St John Mountain Rescue Association
The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association
The students enjoy taking part in the fundraising challenge and learn the Christian principle of giving through their efforts. In engaging in these initiatives the students learn to empathise with persons less fortunate than themselves.
