Lower Fifth Do Charity Enterprise Challenge To a T
On Thursday 21st March Lower Fifth pupils and tutors gathered to hear each House present the charity business pitches they had been working on during the Spring Term as part of the HE & Careers T Shirt Enterprise Challenge. Since the start of term, pupils had worked together to create an effective and convincing fundraising campaign for a charity of their choice, including an appealing design for a T shirt representing their charity.
On the day of the Challenge, each House presented their campaign to the other pupils, who acted as judges, evaluating the merits of each campaign according to a set of criteria. The results were then converted to 'donations', with each Tutor group assigning £50 to the team they judged to be the best, £25 to the second best team, £15 to the third and £10 to the fourth. The winning team was the one that managed to collect the most donations overall.
HE & Careers were very impressed with all of the presentations and T shirt designs. They were imaginative, included a diverse range of charities, some of which had difficult messages, and each presentation reflected a huge amount of work and research. The winners of the competition were announced in Final Assembly on the last day of term and the results were as follows:
- Benson House with CHIPS – Children’s Integrated Playschemes
- Sutton House with CALM – Campaign Against Living Miserably
- Collett House with Survivors UK – Male sexual abuse support
- Tee House with The Brain Charity – National support for neurological conditions
Congratulations to the team from Benson House, who will have £100 donated to their chosen charity as a prize and well done to all the houses! Donations to the charity can be made through their JustGiving page.
