Children in need is a charity that aims to offer every child in the UK a safe, happy, and secure childhood. For these reasons, they hold an important place in our hearts. During school last week, children and staff celebrated Children in Need by participating in a range of fun activities to raise donations to help struggling children in the UK.
Last week Bowerhill showed our support for Children in Need by taking in food bank donations as well as welcoming our pupils to come in dressed up. We also had a special visit from BBc Radio and Pudsey bear! All funds raised were then donated to Children in Need.
Since hitting the BBC airwaves in 1980, Children in Need has raised over £1 Billion to help disadvantaged young people in the UK, and schools play a huge part in helping to raise money and make this event a success.
At Bowerhill Primary School, we see Children in Need as a significant cause and a fantastic opportunity to teach our pupils essential moral values. On Friday they learnt about charitability, kindness, and the importance of helping others. By the end of last week, they had developed skills and knowledge which will allow them to build lifelong habits.
We are glad to have joined schools across the White Horse Federation in making a tangible difference to children's lives.
