The Royal School’s Interact members had the opportunity to view firsthand one of the many good local causes they have worked so hard to raise money for – and in so doing saw how every pound they raise can make a real difference to other people’s lives.
Ten Sixth Form Interact members visited Compton Hospice last week where, as well as presenting a cheque to the charity, they also had the opportunity to tour the facilities and experience for themselves the hospice’s positive and supportive environment.
Pupils presented a cheque for £912 which was raised through various events including ‘Throw a wet sponge at a teacher’ and ‘International Evening’. The money will go towards the hospice’s bereavement service for children.
The Interact Club would like to thank all pupils, parents and teachers for their ongoing support to date and look forward to launching even more fundraising initiatives.
The final week of term will be a celebration of well-being through a host of character development activities. The week begins with the senior school sports day on Tuesday, 9 July.
On Wednesday, 10 and Thursday, 11 July, students will take part in a variety of house competitions and activities that will give them an opportunity to enhance a variety of skills such as leadership, teamwork, problem solving, creativeness and resilience through enterprise, drama and STEM activities to name but a few. During these days, students will also be off site taking part in a number of different activities that encompass our school values such as supporting community projects in the surrounding area and taking to the outdoors for some outdoor and adventurous activities. The school year is brought to a close on Friday, 12 July, with our final house competition. Students will need to use all their skills they have been developing throughout the year and during the week for this end of year extravaganza. We can’t tell you too much about the day as it will spoil the surprise!
