Esher C of E High School has a tradition of supporting the work of charities locally, nationally or internationally.
Each year students investigate innovative ways to raise money through a number of events, with the students themselves deciding on the elected charity through a voting system as led by the Student Council.
More recenlty, charities receiving donations from Esher C of E High School include Refuge, Shooting Star Hospice and Princess Alice Hospice as well as previously raising money for the White Lodge Centre, who work with disabled children and families, enhancing their life experiences.
Students also continue to raise money for a remote rural school and orphanage in Zambia where upper school students have the opportunity to visit and undertake community projects. These projects have included repainting and furnishing a school classroom, providing electricity to be installed at the school as well as digging a borehole for the school and the local community. Additionally, in 2015 the students adopted an orphaned elephant. Updates on it's welfare and development can be seen here.
Every year in March the school holds its annual Charity Week. This was led by the new House System, with each house taking responsibility for one day, and seeking to raise as much money as possible on site through a wide variety of student-led activities, from car washes, to karaoke to staff v student sports fixtures.
Congratulations to everyone who has been involved so far, and Esher C of E High School will continue to strive to support these worthwhile causes.
