Thank you for your Support!

I would like to thank you for your support for this year’s Children in Need Events. The final total raised was £2330.34 which is a record for Children in Need at The Malling School and beats, by a long way, the total from the last time which was £556. This shows what can be achieved when a school pulls together and I am incredibly grateful to be working with such supportive parents, teachers and pupils.

The event this year was led by two students in Year 13 with the support of the rest of Years 12 and 13. Voluntary work is an essential part of the International Baccalaureate and it is our expectation that the older students lead fundraising events such as these. Not only does this reinforce one of our core values of helping others but it also helps our students develop leadership skills which will serve them well in the future. We believe that whilst good examination results are critical, it is also important for students to be involved in activities which turn them into well rounded individuals who have the skills and attributes necessary to succeed in a competitive workplace. We hope you agree.

Please remember that another group of Year 13 are also leading the Operation Christmas Child Box charity event. Whilst I do not want to impose too much on your good will, I do ask that you support your son or daughter to bring in one of the small items to go in a Christmas box to be sent to children less fortunate than us. We have previously sent out communication about this and I have copied the details again for your below this email should you need them.

With thanks in advance for your continued support.
