This Year's Charities

Since 2015 the School has established its Community Fund as the vehicle through which it helps local and varied charities.  The Community Fund is the beneficiary of the school's fund raising efforts.  It also receives support from the Parents' Association. Each year local organisations are invited to apply for grants up to £750 to assist in the delivery of their plans, their training, their endeavours.  A special Committee meets to review the applications prior the distribution of funds.  In 2018 £8,000 was distributed to ten local community groups.  The successful projects are those with an educational bias thereby assisting the school in the delivery of its own charitable objectives.
The School also supports national events such as Jeans for Genes Day, Red Nose and Comic Relief and Children in Need.  In 2016 it hosted its first Give a Child a Wig for Christmas with £10,000 being raised in sponsorship and metres of cut hair being donated to the charity that works with young cancer sufferers.  2016 also saw the staging of the school's fourth HeroBear Triathlon in aid of Help for Heroes. Staff, pupils and parents completed the gruelling course alongside each other.  The total raised for the charity over the four events is approaching £100,000.  Both of these fundraising events were repeated during the 2018 academic year.

The school encourages as many children as possible to get involved in these charity events. It's a great way for them to live and appreciate life to the full and in doing so, help others who need a little more support. Over the years, strong links have been built up with local charities, special schools and hospitals. Christmas concerts and drama productions offer further opportunities through the year to cement these friendships and further raise awareness of the challenges others face in everyday life.  In 2018 Hazelwood was delighted to build links with the four community schools in the Songwe District of Tanzania.  During the holidays, staff visit the schools to work with the teachers in Africa to devise teaching and learning strategies aimed at increasing the levels of attendance and attainment.  School fund raising provides much needed resource for the community schools.  The impact of the partnership to date has been encouraging, with pupils coming to school more often and making significant progress in their studies.
