Every two years, the parents and boys choose a new charity to support, with the final choice made by democratic vote. For the academic years 2020-2022, the boys and their families have voted to support Acton Homeless Concern.
In support of one of the school’s key values, ‘Care’, this school charity was chosen by the boys as they wanted the opportunity to be able to help others less fortunate than themselves. Many boys take the fundraising initiative into their own hands. In the past, individual boys have made cupcakes and sold them, written and published and sold comics and made their own Sudoku challenges. Our most recent initiative was one of the boys setting himself a piano challenge (http://bit.ly/2FOKcwK). Nothing speaks as loudly as a young child taking it upon themselves to help others voluntarily.
There are also several other charitable projects that the Falcons Pre-Prep support throughout the year such as the Poppy Appeal, Jeans for Genes Day and Red Nose Day. The children donate food and supplies every year for the Harvest Festival. On occasion, a class may support a local charity too, such as Reception recently hosting a tea party for their parents to support the Guardian Angels Animal Support Charity.
The Falcons Pre-Prep organise many events to raise money for their chosen charity including quiz nights and a Superhero ‘Funathalon’.
