Charity Fund Raising
Part of the ethos here at St Albans Girls' School is helping those members of our community less fortunate than ourselves.
As a school community we aim to raise £25,000 per year for local, national and international causes. Each of the seven Houses has a charity that they work with from October each school year. The House Captains make use of their assemblies to promote the work of their charity as well as to encourage the members of their House to support the charity through running various fundraising stalls.
As well as raising money for outside agencies, the students at St Albans Girls' School also raise funds to improve their school environment by supporting the work of the STAGS PTA.
This year the House Charities for 2019-2020 are:
|Austen||St Albans and District Foodbank|
|Curie||St Albans and Hertsmere Women's Refuge|
|Franklin||The Sick Children's Trust|
|Parks||The Stephen Lawrence Trust|
|Seacole||The OLLIE Foundation|
Working alongside the House Captains we also have Year 12 Charity Captains who run the whole school fundraising days/weeks. These events go to support the following charitable organisations on a yearly basis:
|Macmillan Coffee Morning||(September)|
|Wear it Pink for Breast Cancer Now||(October)|
|Children in Need||(November)|
|The Poppy Appeal||(November)|
|National AIDS Trust||(December)|
|Comic Relief or Sports Relief||(March)|
|Armed Forces Day||(June)|
In addition to these charities the students also work collectively as a school to raise funds in response to natural disasters or other humanitarian crises as they occur.
Kisaruni Girls’ School: Invest in a Girl
Working with the charity Free the Children St Albans Girls' School has successfully sponsored the education of a young woman called Faith. We are delighted that Faith has successfully completed her education and has graduated from school in Dec 2016. Currently, St Albans Girls' School is sponsoring the education of a student called Sheilla who also attends the Kisaruni Girls’ School in Kenya. Secondary education is very expensive in Keyna and by supporting students like Sheilla the girls at St Albans Girls' School get to learn about the education system in another country and help empower another young women to work their way out of poverty. Sheilla is due to graduate in December 2019.
