The Charity Action Team started out as a small group of dedicated students, devoting their energy and time to a variety of charitable projects.
Over the years the small group grew in to a large and exciting team that raised money and awareness for a host of local and international causes and needs, Haiti, Japan, Red Crescent, Syria, South Africa, Cambodia, Malaysia, animals in Qatar and local cancer patients, to name but a few.
Gradually, the will to run projects and the desire to raise money became so constant, it was decided to develop CHAT into a form activity. Now, each form has the opportunity to work as a team towards a charity of choice.
Forms are expected to raise funds in an imaginative and creative way. The funds raised or goods that are collected are then taken to the area of need. In keeping with the original CHAT ethos, the funds and items are, as far as is possible, taken in person to the source, thus guaranteeing the arrival and handover of goods to those in need. Photographs serve as evidence that the money and equipment is delivered. This inspires the rest of the school to continue giving and it is reassuring to know that all donations reach their desired destinations.
As always, none of the above could happen without the generous giving of the community. Without the continuous support of our kind and gracious students, parents and wider 'family', CHAT would cease to exist.
