Robert Cobbold from WE visited the school to raise issues of homelessness. He held workshops with pupils from Year 7, 8 and 9. They had some great discussions, and came up with two causes, local and global: homelessness and health. Funraising ideas ranged from a charity rugby match, a fair, and ice bucket challenge, a sponsored swim in an icy lake (love this one) and finally a social experiment to raise awareness about people’s attitudes to homeless people.
The pupils will need further time to flesh out the ideas, but were left with a quadrant framework to help them action plan. The idea is to focus on four areas: roles and responsibilities, a timeline, resources and people needed and possible pitfalls. This model is very useful when sketching out a plan.
