At the Elmgreen School we believe that charities are an integral part of every community. We are thrilled to announce that we are in partnership with four local charities. Each college in the school will be working with a different charity and both staff and students will be helping to fundraise. We hope that during the year we can involve families too. The aim of charities at The Elmgreen School is not only to raise money for good causes, but to educate pupils and enable them to become more knowledgeable about the political, cultural and social issues facing the world today.
James College will be working with Mosaic Clubhouse. Mosaic Clubhouse, based in Brixton provides support and opportunities to people living with a mental health condition.
Besant College will be working with Lambeth Action for Youth . Lambeth Action for Youth aims to provide young people with opportunities to become active participants in making positive contributions to their community and engage them in fun & educational activities through a varied range of projects nationwide.
Szabo College will be working with Springboard. Springboard, based in Lambeth provide one to one literacy teaching for children and young people are struggling to read, write, speak and listen.
Wilberforce College will be working with Emmaus. Emmaus Lambeth, based in West Norwood provide a home and meaningful work to homeless people.
Alongside the specific links each College has with these charities, the Colleges also raise money through the annual ‘Penny trail’ and activities for Comic Relief. In the run up to the winter break Colleges also organise the collection of food for the St Lukes Foodbank in West Norwood.
