Fostering links with our communities and supporting our local charities and beyond, are essential features of daily life at Helsby High school. Students from Year 7 to Year 13 contribute to our school charities and our community projects throughout each year.
Through charity days and outreach projects, students and staff at Helsby High School are given frequent opportunities to demonstrate their commitment, consideration and conscientiousness beyond the classroom.
Our philosophy is to support our local communities as much as we can and students make, decorate, cook, play, support, sing, help, volunteer, run, sew, paint, listen and talk in many ways to give back to to their community and beyond.
Some of the ways we support our charities are:
- Donations collected on non-school uniform days for Unicef/li>
- Macmillan coffee mornings
- Cake bakes for Cancer Research Uk
- Donations for the Poppy Appeal
- Our Senior citizen Christmas party
- Carol singing at our local nursing homes
- Christmas hampers, made and delivered
- Donations collected on Christmas jumper day in support of our local food banks
- Rucksacks for refugees
- Fundraising for Interburns
- Easter egg deliveries to our local nursing homes
- Big Green Week poster competitions supporting Action for Climate Frodsham
Helsby High School Charity Fund
We are also proud to have our own Helsby High School Charity fund, which allows us to support local charities throughout the year in a timely manner.
Our teachers also work hard to raise money for our school charity fund. For example, some are running 5K every day for a year, some bake and sell their beautiful cakes and some have played and sung in a band for our students enjoyment. Our students have supported them whole heartedly and raised money for our charity fund in the process.
The Friends of Helsby High School
The Friends of Helsby High School are a dedicated group of volunteer parents and community members who raise money to support the school in a variety of ways. The group run exciting events which bring our community together and the proceeds make important differences to our school. For example the ‘Friends’ have supported the SEND Department with the creation of a sensory space, they have bought boxes of reading books for our Key Stage 3 Forms and they have helped us create more seating areas where our students socialise at break and lunch. The ‘Friends’ would be happy to welcome any new volunteers and their details can be found on their Facebook page.
