In the Community
At Progress Schools we participate in and create projects that will benefit our local communities, raising over £1000 in the last academic year for The Children’s Society. To succeed as adults, young people need to acquire a range of social and practical skills to enable them to find employment, form relationships, take responsibility and become full members of their communities. We are pleased to announce that our chosen charity for the 17 / 18 academic year is the RSPCA.
RSPCA – 2017 / 2018
Every year thousands of animals suffer from neglect, cruelty and abuse. The RSPCA have been looking out for these animals since 1824, relying on our support to continue this work. Their vision is to live in a world where all animals are respected and treated with compassion, improving the welfare of those in the world as well as those used in research and testing. All the money we raise over the coming 12 months will go to the RSPCA where we hope to make a difference.
- So far this year, all schools participated in The Big Coffee Morning, raising hundreds of pounds for our charity (and we are only one month in!)
The Children’s Society – 2016 / 2017
It is a painful fact that many children and young people in Britain today are still suffering extreme hardship, abuse and neglect. Too often their problems are ignored and their voices unheard. Now it is time to listen and to act.
The Children’s Society is a national charity that runs local services, helping children and young people when they are at their most vulnerable, and have nowhere left to turn.
Our students and staff at Progress Schools fundraised for The Children’s Society over the last year, contributing to various projects and activities raising over £1000.
- Bake & Brew – Students prepared and baked a range of cakes to sell and invited members of the public to join us in our schools for a tea, coffee and cakes.
- Abseiling – One of our Senior Management Team, Charlotte, completed a sponsored abseil scaling 420 feet down a famous landmark.
- Enterprise Easter Project – Students were put into project teams, were given a budget and had to decide what products they would manufacture and sell to the public at their very own sales event.
- 5K Run – The Marine and Toxteth students and staff participated in a 5K run at Stanley Park. This was a joint Liverpool and Everton event – Run for the 96′.
