In June last year, during the activity week at the end of the summer term, the lower sixth year group worked together to raise nearly £7000 for two charities, The Chailey Heritage Foundation and Sight Savers.
As a year group, they took part in a Musikscool event – in one day, between them, they wrote and recorded five original music tracks, arranged the publicity for their event using the media and social media, organised fundraising for the event, and they took photos and created a video of the day. During the day they learned a lot about themselves individually and as a team; they learnt to believe in their own abilities and to face a challenge head-on and with confidence. The whole year group bonded more than ever before in one single day. The girls had a wonderful time, and achieved a great deal for the benefit of others. The cheques for the money raised were formally presented by the girls in Assembly to a representative from the charity on Tuesday 3 February 2015.
