The students at The Polygon School have a strong tradition of supporting Charities and raising money through a variety of ways.
Our students work tirelessly to help both The Friends of The Polygon and various Charities such as Brain Tumour Research, The British Legion and a Shoe Box Appeal at Christmas.
The students worked hard to collect clothing for the Bags2School appeal which raised funds for the Friends of the Polygon School. The students raised £116 which they are hoping to put towards a school trip to Iceland to support their studies in Science and Geography.
The whole school participated in an assembly for Remembrance Sunday and raised money to purchase a reef by holding a raffle. In the photograph the pupils can be seen laying their reef at the Cenotaph in Southampton.
The staff and students raised money for Brain Tumour Research by participating in The Wear A Hat Day. This was a great fun way to raise money for a very serious issue and it was great to see so many people wearing hats and giving to the charity.
The students are all looking forward to supporting the same charities this year as well as filling shoe boxes for the Shoe Box Appeal during their breakfast club sessions.
Well done everyone.
On Wednesday 23rd March 2016 staff and students of the Polygon school participated in Wear a Hat Day, a national charity event to raid awareness and funds for Brain Tumour Research.
The pupils learnt about the charity and its current funding as well as who brain tumours can affect. Everyone showed great interest and enthusiasm in supporting the event. There was opportunity to buy pin badges and wristbands and on the day everyone was welcome to wear a hat or a piece of head wear to show support and make a small donation. Some pupils even donated their personal Vivo points to the charity.
It was a very successful day and everyone enjoyed participating. The Polygon school raised over £100 and showed outstanding support and awareness for this great cause. We are planning to participate in the event again in 2017!
