Woolwich Poly students are committed to raising money and awareness for various charities throughout the year by supporting events such as Jeans for Genes day, Children in Need and Red Nose Day.
We traditionally dedicate a half term to Kindness and Giving each year - this occurred in November and December this year and each year group focussed on a different charitable cause.
- Year 7 supported the Metropolitan Police in the Christmas tree project, where they bought and donated over 100 presents for children in need across the borough.
- Year 8 raised over £400 for Oxfam unwrapped - a project to provide farming equipment for villages in third world countries.
- Year 9 bought Christmas presents for the elderly in our local care home - they filled over 25 hampers with gifts.
- Year 10 supported Crisis at Christmas, who support the homeless people of London over the Christmas period. They filled up an entire car with food, blankets, clothes and toiletries.
- Year 11 supported the local food banks to help those in need over the winter period. They donated over 40 boxes of food. This was all collected in just over 4 weeks so it was a fantastic testament to the generosity of our students to collect so much.
