Fundraising has always been an important part of life at St John’s School. Our children are encouraged to help other people and to consider those less fortunate than themselves. We always ensure that a representative from the charity that we are currently supporting comes to the school to explain the work of their organisation to both staff and pupils.
Each year St John’s selects a local or national charity to support. Last academic year we supported SNAP (Special Needs And Parents), an Essex charity for families with children and young people who have any special need or disability. SNAP’s aims are to inform, encourage and support parents and carers so that they can grow in strength and knowledge and become better equipped to give the best possible help to their children. In total we raised over £4,000 in 2021 to 2022.
Throughout the year Miss Blore and Mr Murray organise various events for our pupils to enjoy such as cake sales, raffles and non-uniform days.
Any appeal launched at school is always met with a response of kindness and generosity that is so typical of St John’s School pupils, staff and parents.
Our chosen charity for 2022 to 2023 is the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance. They are truly a life-saving Charity kept airborne thanks to everyone who plays their Lottery, makes a donation, enjoys their events, fundraises and volunteers in aid of EHAAT. If you would like support our 2022 to 2023 campaign donations can be sent to Miss Blore.
