Article 27 (adequate standard of living)
‘Every child has the right to a standard of living that is good enough to meet their physical and social needs and support their development’
This week is Charity week at Teign and we are committed to fundraising and to raise awareness of Article 27. Before Christmas, we have the following charity activities taking place:
- Christmas Jumper Day for Save the Children. Students can wear a Christmas jumper instead of their blazer and tie (the rest of the uniform will be worn) and donate £2 to the charity. This will take place on 13th December
- HITS Food bank: Over the next two weeks we will be collecting food donations for HITS. HITS (Homeless in Teignbridge support) works with homeless people and those in crisis and need in our community, throughout Teignbridge and in the more rural areas. People that we have helped include those who are homeless, victims of domestic violence, ex-service personnel, the elderly, and families in poverty. We would be grateful of any donations of ‘Long Life’ Christmas food items that can then be arranged in hampers such as:
Other types of sweet puddings
Long life milk
Donations need to in school by 13th December and will be collected by Form Tutors.
- Non-school uniform day, 20th December. We invite students to wear non-uniform and all things Christmas (jumpers/socks/onesies/hats) for the last day of term and contribute £1 to charity. The Student Council have used their right to a voice (Article 12) and nominated 4 charities that the money will be split between. More information on these to follow.
