The importance of giving

Please enter an introduction for your news story here.

Taking part in fundraising and charity work is at the heart of our ethos at Bishop Douglass. Our students are resolute in their determination to raise as much money as they can for good causes.

This year, the annual numeracy fundraising event to support the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) took place on the first Friday of February to help children of all ages from around the world. NSPCC number day is important since it allows children who are not as privileged as us to have access to a better childhood.

School children worldwide take part in fundraising events where they are involved in various numeracy-themed activities throughout this one particular day. At Bishop Douglass we got creative and our young people were involved in a wide range of events including: a school quiz, form competitions, teachers v students quiz, tuck shop, numeracy starters in lots of different subjects and ‘guess the number of sweets in a jar’.  

These various numerical activities were great fun and I really enjoyed beating the Y8 form tutors in the school quiz - it was an amazing and unforgettable experience!”  Sarah, 8C
