Charity

 

The students and staff at Addeys have always been very generous in raising awareness and supporting a wide range of charities.  Perhaps it stems from the long history of the school going back to the initial reasons for founding the Addey and then the Stanhope Schools in Deptford.  We believe it is important that students develop empathy and show compassion for others in less fortunate positions.  Over the course of each academic year we hold several assemblies to highlight the work done by the organisations we support and also inform students through lessons and student briefing in pastoral time.  Planning and then running fundraising events is also a great way for the students to develop life skills such as co-operation, independent thinking, leadership and organisation. 

 

“Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.”

Francis of Assisi
