Wednesday Afternoon Activity
Do something seriously rewarding on your Wednesday afternoons:
St Joseph’s School – a popular option for students, joining in at St Joseph’s (a children’s school just across the road for children with severe learning difficulties) where you will not fail to get involved on a one-to-one basis with a pupil there, doing anything from playing football with them to helping bake cakes as an out-of-school activity.
Knowle Park Nursing, Cranleigh – brighten up the afternoons of some of the Senior Citizens at this local home.
Litter picking around Cranleigh and helping to keep the War Memorial tidy through the Royal British Legion – work with the Parish Council, in these all-important activities.
Working in the Cranleigh Village Library – stock taking, stacking books and assisting with keeping the communal areas tidy.
Local charity outlets – help out at some of these vital fundraising outlets, including the Barnardos Charity Shop and the Hospital Trust Shop.
Adult Literacy Group – help supply the following items for them:
• Writing & Drawing paper
• Coloured felt pens
• Story Tapes
• Selection of books
• Jigsaw puzzles
Recycling on campus – work as part of a team, recycling paper and compostable food waste for use on the School Garden Project.
Musical involvement within the village
Combined concerts – with the musicians of Glebelands here at school – invariably a great success.
The annual Village Remembrance Service – musicians from Cranleigh School, Glebelands School, Park Mead School and some Cranleigh Youth Band members have played together at the local Open Air Remembrance Service in the village – an extremely moving event, at which the Head Boy has also laid a wreath at the War Memorial on behalf of the School.
Regular lunchtime concerts – to which local residents are invited. This is a particularly popular event with the Senior Citizens at Knowle Park Nursing Home, Cranleigh, and also with St Josephs School. And for those residents not able to make it up to the school, you can join one of the ensembles who give informal concerts at Elmbridge and Moat Lodge.
Join our team of fundraisers throughout the year, raising money through various initiatives for a wide range of extremely good causes including, most recently:
Our sister school in KAWAMA (including child sponsorship)
Baptist Church Summer Camp for under privileged children in Cranleigh – for which Sam Cooke is one of the organisers.
Hope and Homes for Children – a charity working in Central and Eastern Europe and Africa, whose mission is to give hope to orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children, by enabling them to grow up within the love of a family and the security of a home.
Join the team in creating the Christmas parcels for the needy OAP’s in the village, and in delivering them to up to 100 local residents around the village and at Longfields Nursing Home.
