Generous staff and students at Nicholas Breakspear Catholic School in St Albans have recently devoted a week to fundraising for KISS - Kiddies Support Scheme - a charity which provides schooling materials and support for children in Uganda.
Nicole Kelly writes: It all began after the February half term, when the head boy and head girl visited Uganda to see the projects which KISS supports. The came back feeling so inspired they decided to organise a week dedicated to fundraising for this deserving cause.
Activities included a 12 hour bounce, fancy dress, a lunchtime carnival and NBS to Uganda, where students made up the distance from London to Uganda in sport activities.
The school hallways were scattered with posters advertising various form ideas and events.
This week has not only raised a phenomenal amount of money, but it has also seen the school come together as a collective to 'reach out in love to those in need'. This has enabled the school to make a significant impact on the lives of those less fortunate. Furthermore, it has also allowed us as students to reflect upon the privileges we take for granted. The course of the week brought about a vibrant ambience and marked the beginning of a new Nicholas Breakspear Catholic School tradition.
