The Weald Primary School is a school with relationships and community at its heart. We actively encourage all students to get involved in fundraising activities for both local and international charities.
We regularly supports a range of charities by holding cake sales, mufti days and sponsored events. During the last year we have supported Macmillan, Red Nose Day (Comic Relief), Children in Need (we raised £360.73), and Save the Children (we raised £210.35 on Christmas Jumper Day).
We raise money each year by selling poppies and wristbands for The Royal British Legion. This year we raised £271.46.
All of our Christmas Carol Concerts, Music Concerts and Nativities had collections for The Royal Marsden, through the www.ejtandemonium.com campaign and we raised over £500.
Closer to home, our Harvest collection of tins, packets and non-perishable food, went to the Dorking Food Bank. This food is distributed to the poor and needy in the Dorking Area.
Our Year 6 children each year are involved in an Enterprise Week where they think up and run a money-making enterprise. Half of the money they raise goes to charity and the rest is spent on a treat for themselves. However this year, one class decided that all the money should go to charity and kept nothing for themselves. We were incredibly proud of them and delighted that the school has encouraged and helped them to be such selfless individuals.
Our school council have recently agreed to support two charities for the remainder of the academic year. These are the Tadworth Childrens Trust and The Lunchbowl Network.
