Our community cares deeply. Through their personal passions, the young people at Plumstead Manor look for charities that support their causes. It's not just about the charity itself - it's the underlying cause that really drives our students. Helping others makes a difference. Students from Years 7 to 13 organise events because they want to do more for charity and to raise awareness of many causes. This is true community action. Our students give their time, energy and voice to improve other people's lives. They rise to the challenge to take action on issues they really care about. Through this, they learn important skills that will support them on their learning journey. They develop skills for social action and learn about civil society. They learn about charity's role in society and strengthen their connection to their chosen causes. They develop links with the wider community. They are entrepreneurs, fundraisers, campaigners and volunteers, gaining knowledge that they can make positive changes to the lives of others.
We are proud to report that during this year, 2015/16, our community has raised £6870.75. This shows that our young people have compassion, kindness, curiosity and open-mindedness. They are developing character strength, great values and go that extra mile to change the world for the better.
Thank you all for your support.
