Every two years, the parents and boys choose a new charity to support, with the final choice made by democratic vote. In September 2018, the boys voted to support The Marine Conservation Society.
The Marine Conservation Society is the UK’s leading marine charity, working to ensure our seas are healthy, pollution free and protected. Our seas are under immense pressure: too many fish are being taken out, too much rubbish is being thrown in and too little is being done to protect our precious wildlife. The Marine Conservation Society’s vision is for seas full of life where nature flourishes and people thrive.
This school charity was chosen by the children as it resonated with them to help clear the seas and oceans of pollution, notably plastic. 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’.
